Other Advisors and Assistants

Contact a Faculty Advisor when 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 Department of Psychology. 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. 

Contact the Pre-Clinical Advisor if you would like advising concerning planning a career in psychological treatment and counseling. In particular, the Pre-Clinical Advisor can provide insight and answer questions regarding applying to graduate school in clinical psychology.

Peer Advisors are students who are majoring in Psychology or in Neuroscience and Behavior and who have volunteered their time and energy to the creation and implementation of a Psychology Peer Advising Network. The charge for Peer Advisors is to provide a resource of accurate information for students while also devising new and more effective ways to facilitate contact between majors and faculty advisors.

Peer Advisors are well informed of the department's requirements and policies, they are comfortable working with both faculty and students, and they are interested in overseeing new programs and events to better inform majors of opportunities within the Department of Psychology.

The Undergraduate Curriculum Assistant (UCA) is available if you need any assistance with the administrative aspects of your degree. The UCA can address questions concerning transfer credits, science requirement fulfillment, major/concentration requirements, and other administrative matters.
