Master's Program Advising
Each student is assigned a temporary academic adviser upon admission into the program. Students must select a permanent academic adviser no later than the end of the fall quarter of their first year of study. The M.A. adviser helps each student develop a plan of study and supervises the student's research and progress toward satisfying degree requirements. The M.A. adviser also serves as chair of the student's M.A. committee.
The interests of students often evolve to the degree that a change of advisers is indicated. A change can be made with the approval of the program's graduate adviser.
