It is recommended that all students meet with a faculty advisor. Faculty advisors are experts in your field; they possess in-depth knowledge of the subject matter and opportunities in the field. They can provide mentoring, recommend courses for your major, help you refine your education goals, advise you on graduate school and career possibilities, and discuss research opportunities.
Students are encouraged to attend office hours or contact a faculty member to set up an advising session. Be sure to prepare beforehand by reading up on the faculty members research focus as outlined on their Earth & Planetary Sciences Faculty web page.
