Sociology majors and minors are each assigned a faculty advisor who is available to provide information and counsel throughout the student’s period of study at Case. Advisors provide information about courses, concentrations, requirements, career issues, and other topics of concern. As an undergraduate Sociology student, you are welcome to contact your advisor at any time to discuss questions and concerns. If in the course of one’s studies, you find that your interests are shifting or for other reasons, you may also request to change advisors.
Each semester, during the pre-registration period you should have a discussion with your advisor, it is recommended that you come prepared for the consultation with your advisor about your course selection. You need to check your status with regard to required courses, have a list of preferred courses, and a second list (in case those on your first list are closed) of backup courses. When your advisor has approved your plan for the semester, s/he will release your advising hold. Also, it is important that you arrange additional appointments throughout the semester to discuss any issues that you may have, as well as your general progress and future plans.
