Academic advisers can provide guidance and assistance to help students
achieve their educational goals. Students should work closely with their
advisers to: plan realistic educational goals, understand degree options and
requirements, assess their strengths and areas for improvement, understand the financial aspects of their choices, and set realistic post-graduate objectives for themselves.
The academic adviser for political science students is Ms. Estela Barragan. Students can schedule appointments with her via the BlueStar system in Campus Connect. Or, they can send questions to her at firstname.lastname@example.org. Ms. Barragan can help students with:
- Degree progress and graduation requirements
- Questions about transfer or Study Abroad course credit
- University, college, and departmental policies and procedures
- Questions about courses, academic majors and minors, university services, etc.
In addition to the academic adviser, a faculty adviser is assigned to
each student. The faculty adviser can help students with:
- Course selection relating to a students career or personal interests
- Preparing for graduate school, law school, or other career paths
- Learning about research, publication, and conference opportunities
