The advisors in the Department of Bioogy want to give every Biology major the best chance for completing their degree within a specific time AND with the greatest chance of success. Here are some typical topics that students often discuss with their academic advisors.

  • Are there issues or concerns affecting your academic performance? What campus resources could help you address such problems?
  • Share information about your academic and career goals.  Discuss starting your research into possible careers.
  • Current semester courses and performance in coursework
  • Plan future semester courses - including summer
  • Review University, College and Department / Major requirements (it is your responsibility to be sure these are all met, but your advisor can help you sort these out.)
  • Work experience to help you attain your career goals (internships? volunteer? research experience?)
  • Plan for Study Abroad.
  • Long term planning towards graduate school.
