Students majoring or minoring in Communication, majoring in Mass Media, or minoring in Critical Intercultural Communication have two advisors—an academic advisor and a faculty advisor.
The academic advisor for department majors and minors is Silverio Haro. He advises students on University requirements, transfer credits, and degree planner; as well, he is knowledgeable about the majors and minors offered in the department. To meet with him, visit Undergraduate Advising Services and make an appointment.
Faculty advisors are tenure track faculty in the department, see the list of advisors provided below. The role of faculty advisors is multi-layered. They (1) advise students on curriculum and requirements for the majors and/or minors; (2) approve transfer work for requirements in either major; (3) advise students on their progress via Degree Planner and major advising worksheets; (4) guide students on course selection given students’ interests; and/or (5) discuss graduate school and/or internship possibilities, among other topics of conversation.
Students are strongly advised to visit with their faculty advisor in addition to their academic advisor. Students may track their progress using the advising worksheets and review university Graduation Requirements.
