Advising

The Global Studies major has shifted to a professional academic adviser model to handle the needs of our growing cohort of majors.  Please note that this replaces the more traditional “faculty advisor” model that many departments on campus utilize.

Ms. Grace Castle (MA) is the new full-time Academic Advisor for GLBL.  She will be the front line of our advising team. All questions about the major – from informational to topic-specific – should be routed through Grace.  She will coordinate advising and refer students in need of additional support to faculty working within the major and other support units on campus, including: study abroad advising, scholarship and fellowship information, undergraduate research workshops and career development resources.  Students may seek advising help from Ms. Castle at any point during the fall, winter, spring and summer terms. Course registration advising takes place at two specific junctures during the academic year – early November and early March. All students who have completed GLBL 101 will be assigned to a registration adviser for these biannual appointments.  Your registration advisor will assist you in choosing a class schedule and checking your degree audit.  New majors or those who have not yet taken GLBL 101 will be directed to open (walk-in) advising hours during the advanced registration period.
