Undergraduate Advising

As of FA14, undergraduate advising for the College of Liberal Arts is now centrally organized and performed by the ATLAS Network (562–985–7804), which is located in PH1–104. ATLAS primarily assists students with general advising issues: general education requirements, overall degree progress, double-majoring or enrollment in a minor, study abroad, the Writing Proficiency Exam (WPE), academic review and timely graduation, and other broad curricular matters.

Most questions should be handled by ATLAS advisors. For more narrowly questions about Philosophy that require a response from the Department Chairperson or Undergraduate Advisor, please contact Prof. Nellie Wieland:

FA19 Graduate Assistants and Tutors

Each semester, the Department provides support to undergraduate students. Graduate assistants are assigned to a specific professor/course to provide assistance with classroom management, course organization and grading, and additional office hours. Graduate tutors hold extended office hours to help students in multiple sections or across multiple courses.

All graduate assistants and tutors hold their office hours in the department seminar room (MHB–915). Please e-mail for an appointment; walk-ins are happily accepted.
