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). 

Which advisor should I see?

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 help with picking a track if you're not sure, they can help with questions about grad school or careers after graduation, and could even help you find the right alternate major if you're not sure your current major is right 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.

***Important Note*** All office hours in January will be remote
