Academic Advising in Mathematical and Physical Sciences

In the Division of Mathematical and Physical Sciences, we believe that our students are unique and require advising tailored to the rigors of our majors. From our departmental advisors to the advisors in MPS Advising & Retention Resources (MARRs), we want to guide our students from enrollment in our majors (or undeclared) to graduation and finally to a fulfilling career using their degree. In tandem with the Letters and Science Undergraduate Education and Advising (UEA), we seek to provide academic and career advising for students in all levels of their undergraduate education. We are here to help.

MPS Advising & Retention Resources (MARRs):

Everson Hall 111

MPS Advising is an advising group committed to supporting MPS departments with their undergraduate programs and advising, as well as improving the retention, academic success and career placement of all MPS majors. Staffed by two advisors and a Advising Supervisor, we meet with students in Undeclared - Physical Sciences for annual mandatory advising and other students considering multiple MPS majors/minors. Our advisors can provide the following services:

  • Prepatory academic planning (years 1-2) in MPS majors
  • Explore potential majors and interests in MPS
  • Explore career options within MPS majors
  • General study skills and academic support resource referrals
  • Chemistry Appointments and drop-ins

To meet with our advisorsmake an appointment here or email your respective advisor (Jasmine or Rachel) if you cannot make the available appointment times. Advisors are available for drop-in appointments on Fridays from 1-3 pm.
