Advising for Undergraduates

Political science concentrators benefit from a range of advising resources, including the Director of Undergraduate Studies (DUS) and Faculty Advisors.

The DUS holds regular office hours (see below) for the purpose of advising you on all matters relating to the concentration, including concentration requirements, study abroad programs, planning for the senior thesis, and activities in the department.

For information and advice about the field of political science and your intellectual trajectory, you are encouraged to consult with your Faculty Advisor.

Our faculty and staff stand ready to help you however we can – but remember that advising is a two-way street. We depend on you to ask for assistance when you need it. Taking the initiative is up to you. We recommend that you seek advising from the various sources we offer on a regular basis. It is especially important to review your plans for fulfilling the concentration requirements midway through your sophomore and junior years, and again very early in your senior year.
