Advising Appointments

Talk to your advisor

It is the mission of studio art advisors to counsel current and prospective students with regard to achieving their stated academic and career objectives in the Department of Studio Art.

The advisor works to help students set and achieve academic and career goals as much as possible, but it is the student’s responsibility to know the College of Arts and Sciences degrees requirements as well as the Department of Studio Art major requirements.

The College of Arts and Sciences bulletin for each year are available online. The advisor’s role is to help students interpret this information and apply it effectively toward reaching their individual goals.
