Professor Melissa Nelson is the Department of Anthropology's Undergraduate Advisor. You should contact her if you are interested in declaring a major in anthropology. In addition to helping you file a degree plan (D.A.R.F.) with the College of Liberal Arts & Social Sciences, she can help advise you on course selections, anthropology tracks, and post-graduate advice. In addition, contact Professor Nelson if you are interested in field-school, study-abroad, internship, or substitution credit toward your Anthropology Major requirements.
You should make it a point to touch base with Professor Nelson at least once a semester to discuss your academic progress. In addition to advising you on the best path to complete your Anthropology degree plan, Professor Nelson serves as your point of reference for any issues or interests that might arise within the scope of Anthropology.
Professor Nelson works closely with a dedicated team of CLASS (College of Liberal Arts & Social Sciences) advisors who provide support for our students' comprehensive academic progress, advising on both Anthropology degree and CORE requirements. You should seek out a CLASS advisor if you are: considering declaring a double-major or minor, filing a graduation application, needing course advice, requesting transfer credit, or seeking information regarding campus resources.
