Advising for Political Science Majors

Advising for Current Majors and Minors

All declared majors for Political Science, International Relations, Political Science-Journalism and minors for Political Science should be assigned to an advisor within the department. Advisor assignments can be found in your Student Center, underneath your "To Do" list. Any declared major or minor not assigned to a specific advisor or those requesting to change their assigned advisor should email for assistance.

Advisors should be available during their posted office hours, which can be found below. Additionally, appointment times outside of posted office hours can be requested by emailing your advisor directly.

Advising for Prospective Majors and Minors

Students interested in declaring a major or minor within Political Science should email the Department Chair, Professor DiSarro to schedule an advising appointment. For those interested in Political Science-Journalism, please contact Danielle Martin and Molly Dugan for advising.

Once advising has been completed, a Change of Major/Minor form will be submitted to update the student's record.
