Advising Appointments

Advising is a great way for current and prospective students to learn about different majors, how to navigate through the major, about jobs and internships and grad school opportunities. Both the Environmental Policy Analysis & Planning (EPAP) and Environmental Science & Management (ESM) majors have dedicated faculty, staff, and peer advisors available for both current and prospective students. Staff advisors are your first stop for advising and can help you navigate the major, plan your classes, and can offer general advice about the major. Faculty master advisors are a great resource for information about career paths, graduate schools, and even just help in choosing the right major track for you. Peer advisors are current juniors or seniors who can provide an inside perspective on the major and the classes that are part of the major.
