Undergraduate Advising

In FA14, undergraduate advising for the College of Liberal Arts was centrally organized and performed by ATLAS, which has since been re-located to LA1. ATLAS primarily assists students with general advising issues: questions about university requirements, overall degree progress, double-majoring or enrollment in a minor, study abroad, academic review and timely graduation, and other broad curricular matters. Some questions should be handled by ATLAS advisors. However, ATLAS also refers students back to individual departments if they more narrow or discipline-specific questions. So, if students require a response from the Department Chair or Undergraduate Advisor, please contact her for an appointment or visit her during office hours:

Dr. Nellie Wieland

Graduate Advising

All questions about graduate programs of study and other advising-related issues in Philosophy should be directed to the Graduate Advisor. Please contact him for an appointment or visit him during office hours:

Graduate Assistants and Tutors

Each semester, the Department provides support to undergraduate students. Graduate assistants are normally assigned to a specific professor/course to provide assistance with classroom management, course organization and grading, and additional office hours. Graduate tutors hold extended office hours to help students in multiple sections or across multiple courses. Students should check their course syllabi for GA contact information.
