Advisement

Undergraduate Program in Childhood Education

Students interested in the Childhood program major in Science, Letters and Society (SLS).  Through a separate process, students are admitted to the Education program.  As a result, students in this program have three sources for advisement; an Education faculty advisor assigned to each cohort of entering students, the School of Education Director of Program Administration, and faculty and staff in the SLS office. Each of these advisors offers the following areas of expertise:

Education Faculty Advisor

  • Advises students about professional aspirations, career choices, intellectual growth, and unique opportunities. 
  • Advises students about Education course content, academic and professional relationships, and other academic issues that arise.
  • Advises students who are in academic difficulty (i.e., whose GPAs have fallen below minimum standards) in their Education courses.
  • Advise students who seek an academic waiver for an Education requirement of any kind.
