Pre-Graduate School Advising

Are you thinking about graduate school? Many owls choose to pursue master’s or doctorate graduate programs after they have completed an undergraduate degree. If this applies to you, we recommend that you meet with your advisor during your sophomore or junior year to plan your long-term goals.

Pre-Law Advising

You don’t need a particular major to apply for admission to law school. But you should meet with a pre-law advisor during your freshman year. Contact one to learn more: Dr. Paul Crowe.

Departmental Advising

If you haven’t already, you should meet with a department advisor to discuss your program’s requirements. This will help you gain a holistic view of your discipline. Plus, you’ll likely discover new opportunities associated with your field of interest. Your department advisors can be found in the Undergraduate Bulletin.
