Advising & Mentoring for Undergraduates

Undergraduate Majors & Minors: Undergraduates are mentored in the Geography department by faculty; students receive advising from the advising staff in the College of Arts and Sciences. Geography mentors provide guidance about courses, areas of specialization, and career paths. CAS advisors assist students with educational requirements, graduation checks, and course registration.

All new Geography majors must meet with Dr. Susan Hume before the end of their first semester as a declared major. Students pursuing Social Science certification minors are advised by Dr. Susan Hume. CAS General Advising will provide students with their registration PIN's and track progress toward graduation.

For more information on undergraduate advising and mentoring, see the Undergraduate Major Layout & AOS Agreement form on the forms page.

Graduate students: Prospective graduate students should contact the Graduate Program Director, Dr. Alan Black.
