Undergraduate advising in Gender and Women’s Studies and LGBTQ+ Studies supports students’ course planning in the context of their academic and professional goals. The undergraduate advisor shares information about courses and degree requirements, campus and community involvement, Honors in the Major, and other opportunities for research, summer or semester-long study abroad, internship and job applications, and planning for graduation.
As graduation approaches, the Department of Gender and Women’s Studies helps students plan for meaningful job opportunities and/or apply to graduate or professional programs where they can apply the skills, knowledge, and awareness they have developed in Gender & Women’s Studies and LGBTQ+ Studies courses.
Susan Nelson is the undergraduate advisor in GWS and LGBTQ+ Studies. Students can access advising through Microsoft Teams. Schedule an appointment in Starfish, and just before your appointment, you’ll receive an invitation to meet in Teams. If you have scheduling questions, contact Susan Nelson at email@example.com.
