The faculty in the Department of Religion, Philosophy, and Classics are committed to advising. We want to see you in our classes and in our offices. We understand that some of the most important parts of a college education occur outside the classroom.
If you have questions from a class discussion or an assigned reading, if you are struggling with an assignment or excited about a paper topic, if you are thinking of graduate school or don’t know what to do when you graduate, come talk with us.
Most important, you should get regular advising.
Yes! Contact Dr. Ava Chamberlain, the Department Chair, to arrange for a visit.
A degree audit report is an important tool. It tells you what you need to take, but it cannot substitute for advising.
Regular advising ensures
The staff of the COLA advising office advises you about your overall program of study, including GE requirements, COLA requirements, and Religion, Philosophy, and Classics department requirements.
Faculty advisors advise you about Religion, Philosophy, and Classics Major/Minor requirements and particular class offerings. They also provide guidance about your overall program of study.
All Religion, Philosophy, and Classics majors and minors are assigned a faculty advisor when they declare the major or minor. Your faculty advisor will be listed at the top of your degree audit.
The department chair, Dr. Ava Chamberlain, also welcomes all students in the department to meet with her for advising.
All department faculty hold open office hours every week. You may meet with your advisor during these times.
To meet with your advisor outside regular office hours, you should set up an appointment by emailing the faculty member. Visit the Faculty and Staff Directory page of our site for contact information about Religion, Philosophy, and Classics Department faculty.
