First and second majors are given the opportunity to select their faculty advisor after declaration of the political science major. The faculty advisor is available as a resource to discuss course selection, research opportunities, graduate or professional school information, and such.

Prior to the course registration period each semester, the faculty advisor will contact their advisees to set up an appointment to discuss course selection. This is voluntary but HIGHLY recommended.

Students are REQUIRED to meet with the Undergraduate Program Coordinator each advising period prior to course registration. It is during these meetings that the major requirements are reviewed in detail to make sure that students are on the right track for completion of the major. More detailed information is sent to the students prior to the advising period.

Once you have officially declared the political science major with Pre-Major Advising or the Registrar's Office, please fill out the Email the completed form to Michael Munger, Director of Undergraduate Studies. You should receive confirmation of your advisor within 48 hours of your submission.

We highly recommend that you select a faculty member within your concentration of study. If you have any questions about the selection of an advisor, please feel free to contact Tosha Marshall, Undergraduate Program Coordinator, at
