Advising Appointments

Advising is a great way for current and prospective students to learn about different majors, navigating through the major, jobs and internships, and grad school opportunities. We have dedicated faculty, staff, and peer advisors available for both current and prospective students in our majors--Environmental Policy Analysis & Planning (EPAP) and Environmental Science & Management (ESM)—and our minors—EPAP and Climate Science & Policy (CSAP). Staff advisors are your first stop for advising and can help you navigate the major and plan your classes, as well as offer general advice about the major. Faculty master advisors are a great resource for information about career paths and graduate schools, and can even just help you choose the right major 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.
