Advising

If you are considering the PPE program, you are welcome to meet with an advisor as early as winter term of your first year at U-M for an informational interview. At the very least, once you have declared and been accepted into the PPE program you should schedule an appointment to go over your individual course selections and ensure you understand the major requirements. We suggest meeting with your advisor at least once a year if you are a student in the program.

Our advisors are comprised of a selection of the program's faculty. 

Click here to schedule an advising appointment. You and your advisor can decide whether your appointment will be in person or virtual.

You can also email a question (or more than one) to ppe-advising@umich.edu, and one of our advisors will contact you. 

PPE Peer Advising

PPE peer advisers are PPE majors who have volunteered to help other students with questions about the PPE program. The nature of this help can vary widely; it can include advice about class choices or theme planning, or address questions about a difficult passage in a text for a class. 

This service is a supplement—not a substitute—for meetings with the department’s faculty advisers, course instructors, or people in the Sweetland Center for Writing.  If you have a question that would be better addressed by someone else, you will be directed to the appropriate place.

Advising will be conducted via email (ppe.peers@umich.edu); please put “peer advising” in the subject line, and someone will answer your question as quickly as possible. Advisors are free to choose whether to stay anonymous or identify themselves.

If someone using this service has any questions about it, please contact Judith Beck at phil-ug-coord@umich.edu.
