The anthropology faculty think of advising as a vital part of their teaching. We are committed to mentoring our students to help them succeed personally and professionally. Anthropology students will be matched with an advisor upon entry into the program as a pre-anthropology student or upon acceptance to the major. We attempt to match students with faculty based on their major areas of interest. However, students are encouraged to select their own advisor, change advisors, or consult with other faculty members whenever they feel it is appropriate. Anthropology faculty are available for advising during their office hours or by making an appointment.
