Welcome! Online Student Handbook

Academic Advisors in the
College of Social Science

Students with majors in the College of Social Science are assigned to academic advisors within their major department or program. For specific information about advising assignments, contact your major department or the individuals listed below.

It is important for all students to meet with their advisors on a regular basis. Advisors can help construct a course of study to meet special needs and interests as well as assist students in selecting specific courses to satisfy university, college, and major requirements. In addition, advisors can be a helpful resource in suggesting out-of-classroom activities—like clubs and work experiences—that can enhance career preparation.

Students in the College of Social Science should familiarize themselves with their degree requirements and actively share the responsibility for developing a sound plan of study that addresses their personal academic goals. By working closely with their advisors, students can take advantage of the wide range of opportunities available at MSU.

To make an appointment with an academic advisor please visit: msu.campus.eab.com

Please be aware that advisors only open their appointments 2-3 weeks in advance.
