The Undergraduate Advisor will provide interested students with information and guidance in planning a major or minor. Upon review of the information on our majors and minors, we encourage you to meet with the Advisor, Thom Chivens, in order to discuss specific courses and ways in which anthropology can contribute to your career goals.

Declaring a major or minor requires an advising appointment.

Advising appointments may be scheduled by clicking on the button below.

The Undergraduate Program Coordinator, Melinda Nelson, is available to answer basic advising questions via email at However, some questions require an in-person appointment, such as questions about transfer or study abroad credit, or senior audit (a.k.a. major or minor release). Please schedule an appointment for these matters.

Advising appointments are being conducted by Zoom or by phone. You will receive a Zoom link before your appointment or a phone call at your scheduled appointment time.
