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.

CLASS Advisors

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.
