Advisement and Forms

Advising in the Major

The Director of Undergraduate Studies (DUS) and/or the Undergraduate Committee will assign each newly accepted departmental major to a faculty adviser according to the concentration specified by the student. New majors should devise a plan of study in consultation with their assigned faculty adviser. We encourage all Anthropology majors to meet with their adviser at least once every semester to discuss their progress in the program.

If the student's interest changes, a different adviser may be requested in writing to the Undergraduate Office in 380 Fillmore Academic Center.

The student should discuss his/her post-graduation plans with the faculty adviser and should expect the adviser to assist in applications for employment or graduate educational programs.

Academic Advisement Outside Anthropology

Your departmental faculty adviser is there to support your academic progress in Anthropology and to help you in your post-graduate transition.

For UB General Education (GenEd) or other university academic requirements you should consult with the College of Arts and Sciences Student Advisement and Services office in 275 Park Hall, 645-6883.  The CAS Advisor for Anthropology is Wendy Orosz,
