Advising

International Studies joins together students and courses from across the University; therefore a strong system of advising has been created to guide students through the program. The adviser is an invaluable resource of experience and ideas.
 
Advising is an essential part of our program. The adviser helps establish a course of study for each adjunct major, explores options, and reviews the progress of each student. Your adviser will help with study abroad applications, fellowships opportunities, the honors program, and your petition to graduate. If you are interested in international studies you should set up an advising appointment to determine your course plan early in your undergraduate career because the combination of elective courses for the Thematic and Regional Clusters require more careful planning.
