Departmental advising allows students the opportunity to formulate goals for their education while ensuring they understand the objectives and requirements of their major or minor. While a general LSA advisor manages college wide requirements (for example, Race & Ethnicity or Quantitative Reasoning requirements), a Women’s Studies advisor can provide information about:        

  • The department’s majors or minors
  • Courses that will meet departmental requirements       
  • Senior releases and preparing for graduation        
  • Study abroad and transfer credits

How to Declare

Walk-In Advising: Tuesdays, 1:30-4:30pm in 1122 Lane Hall, 204 S. State St. when classes are in session.

Declaring a major: Students interested in learning more about or declaring a Women's Studies or Gender and Health major can either sign up for an advising appointment online or come to walk-in advising (see above.) Students may declare if they have taken or are taking the prerequisite course for the major (for Women's Studies major, WS 240 Intro to Women's Studies and for Gender and Health major, WS 220 Perspectives in Women's Health.)

Declaring a minor: We prefer that students come to walk-in advising (see above) to declare a minor in Gender & Health, Gender, Race & Nation, or LGBTQ Studies, but if that doesn't work in your schedule please signup for an advising appointment.

Declaring a Social Class and Inequality Studies minor: As this minor is new, students can came to walk-in hours (see above) or sign up for an advising appointment online.
