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 (learn more about our Information Sessions)     
  • Courses that will meet departmental requirements       
  • Senior releases and preparing for graduation        
  • Study abroad and transfer credits
