Undergraduate Advising

Meet with an Advisor

If you have a major or minor in the Political Science Department or are thinking about one, we encourage you to come speak with one of our expert faculty about classes, post-graduation plans, and more. Once you declare a major in the department, we will assign you a specific faculty advisor. But you are always welcome to contact any of us for assistance.

If you are a declared major and are not sure who has been assigned as your advisor, please contact the department secretary, Ms. Doreen Mendelssohn ([email protected]) or the department head, Dr. Barbara Patrick ([email protected]). 

We also encourage you to contact the department head for help with issues involving graduation (course substitutions, waivers, problems with your audit, etc.).

Don't forget that you can monitor your progress toward graduation by consulting U.achieve.
