The Director of Undergraduate Studies is the advisor for philosophy majors. It is a good idea to meet with the advisor in one's first semester as a Major to make certain that you understand the requirements and to ensure that your records are in order (that all transfer credit, test scores, and so forth are properly recorded). Advisors can help students decide upon courses, explain requirements, and generally assist students in having a fulfilling major or minor experience. Students should see advisors in their offices where they can examine the relevant files and make certain they can provide unhurried advice. Advice given between classes will be rushed and may be incomplete.
