Departmental Advising

Close faculty advising and counseling takes place at the departmental level. Each student is assigned a departmental advisor, who meets with the student at least one time each semester. Advising during the freshmanyear is very important, and each student is required to meet with his or hear advisor at least two times each semester in th efreshman year, in order to review mid-semester grades as well as plan the next semester's course schedule. Advising continues through the Senior year and takes its form in planning of schedules, guiding course selection, planning for graduation and post-graduate work or education, as well as other formal and informal matters.

All freshman psychology majors are also enrolled in the Freshman Seminar, designed to enhance both the academic and advising experience of our students' freshman year. Psychology freshman seminar classes are capped at 20 and are composed exclusively of freshman psychology majors.
