The purpose of departmental advising is to help you to formulate and reach your own educational goals while also making sure that you understand the objectives and requirements of the major or minor.

A general LSA advisor (located in 1255 Angell Hall, phone 734.764.0332) deals with general LSA degree requirements (those that do not depend on your choice of major), while a departmental  advisor deals with the requirements specific to a given major or minor. Thus, if you have questions about your distribution or race & ethnicity courses, you should see a general advisor, but if you are concerned about your cognates, required courses, or allowable substitutes in your major or minor, you’ll need to see a departmental advisor.
