While there is a professional advisor assigned to philosophy majors through the PantherSoft Student Records System, the Director of Undergraduate Studies, a philosophy faculty member, is the primary academic advisor for philosophy majors. It is a good idea for the student to meet with the director in their first semester as a Major to make certain that the student understands the requirements and that their records are in order (that all transfer credit, test scores, and so forth are properly recorded). The director can help students decide upon courses, explain requirements, and generally assist students in having a fulfilling major or minor experience.
