Academic Advising

Robertson School advising staff help mass communication majors, minors and graduate students navigate their programs and university requirements necessary for graduation. Advisers are for assistance only. Ultimately, students are responsible for keeping track of and meeting all the requirements of the school and university, as well as staying informed about procedural changes.

Advisers are available during the fall and spring semesters, with limited availability in summer, to assist you with advising needs. Find your adviser below by concentration, and when you're ready to request an appointment, follow the instructions in Navigate.
