The table above shows your Faculty Advisor assignments for Spring 2014. These assignments apply to all Columbia undergraduates who have already declared a Psychology Major or Concentration, or a Neuroscience and Behavior Major, and are interested in meeting with a faculty advisor.
When should you visit a Faculty Advisor? Whenever you wish to have one-on-one time with a psychology professor to discuss things such as the field of psychology, career opportunities and graduate study, course offerings or research opportunities in the Dept. of Psychology. (For advice regarding graduate study in clinical psychology, we recommend that you attend the PreClinical Q & A sessions and see the PreClinical Advisor, Prof. E'mett McCaskill, during her office hours.) Faculty Advisors can provide guidance in planning your academic program, but they are generally not prepared to discuss the fine points of major requirements, exceptions to requirements, or other administrative aspects of your degree. Such information is found in great abundance on the Web, and questions regarding degree requirements are best addressed to your DUS or program advisors, or to the Undergraduate Curriculum Assistant in 406 Schermerhorn.
What to bring: Your Faculty Advisor will benefit from knowing what psychology courses you have taken, and are planning to take, so please bring a completed Major Requirement Checklist with you.
You will find faculty contact information and office hours on the web . Note that faculty may sometimes have to miss their posted office hours due to other professional activities, such as attending scientific conferences or university meetings. Emergency Contacts are available if you have an urgent need for faculty advising and your assigned advisors are not able to see you.
