At Tykeson Hall, you can work with professional College and Career Advisors who can help you explore your interests, schedule your classes, plan for graduation, discuss career interests, and more!

Students seeking advising specifically on their International Studies major or minor are now requested to make appointments with “Global Connections” advisors. The Global Connections advisors will work closely with the INTL Undergraduate Admin and Advising Teams to ensure students have clear understanding of departmental requirements.

Faculty Mentor 

The role of the faculty mentor as mentor is central to the program. Students interested in applying to the program should contact a faculty member with whom they have a common area of interest to act as their mentor and mentor, typically one of the International Studies Department core faculty, or an outside faculty member with expertise in the student’s concentration areas.
