General Advising Information and Statement
The mathematics department is committed to offering the best possible communication between the faculty and the students. The Undergraduate Advising Office is always happy to make arrangements to meet with all students to discuss both specific course issues as well as to field general questions about the mathematics curriculum and content.
Math Major Advising
In order to keep up good communication with our mathematics majors, as well as multiple majors, we insist upon one-on-one advising sessions each semester in which both the present educational and future employment desires and plans of the students come together in the consideration and planning of the student's schedule.
An advising appointment is set up with the Undergraduate Advising Office and/or a faculty advisor to discuss the student's past and present progress as well as future plans. We have faculty advisors from various disciplines so a student with specific interests may meet with an advisor who has a good understanding of the student's personal goals and desires.
Advising usually takes place during a specific time period each semester, at which point the department and the student have a good idea of how the current semester is progressing. The Undergraduate Advising Office is always available, however, to address any issues that a student might wish to discuss.
We maintain an email list for our mathematics majors and other interested persons, through which we send up-to-date information regarding the program as well as employment and financial aid opportunities. If you are not on this list and would like to join it, please contact
