Students are not assigned a specific faculty advisor within the Anthropology Department, but are encouraged to seek advice on courses and career planning from faculty members with whom they take courses or faculty they've come to know through participation in their research, particularly if the students are focusing their studies in a particular subfield.
Students interested in majoring or minoring in anthropology should meet with the Director of Undergraduate Studies to discuss their choice of a major or minor. All majors in anthropology should meet once a semester with the Director of Undergraduate Studies for advising on course selection and progress to degree. Students minoring in anthropology may meet less regularly with the Undergraduate Director, but should still seek annual advising on course requirements, course offerings and progress to degree. Majors and minors should also see the Undergraduate Director about any problems with their DARS reports, if they are planning to study abroad for a semester and for any administrative matters relating to their major/minor.
This information is not intended as a substitute for advising, and all anthropology majors and minors should meet with the Director of Undergraduate Studies in the Anthropology Department periodically throughout their studies at Binghamton University.
