All incoming students have as their academic advisor either Dr. Margaret Woodhull, Director, Humanities; Dr. Omar Swartz, Director, Social Science; or Associate Director, Dr. Myra Bookman. The advisor helps design a course of studies consistent with the students intellectual interests. It is the student's responsibility to contact his or her initial advisor as soon as her or she enters the program. The student should make regular contact with the advisor, ideally at least once each semester.
You may request a change in advisors at any time while you are in the program. A student may change advisors if he or she wishes to work with a faculty member outside of the program staff. In this case, students should download a copy of the "Change of Advisor Document" below and follow its directions.

The Suggested Course List is a list of courses/classes that the MH and MSS Director's have reviewed and approved for our MHMSS students to take without requiring an appointment with an advisor to find out whether the course is appropriate. The list will be updated before the beginning of each semester and not only posted on the website, but emailed to students. If a student does not see see a particular course in which he/she would like to take, please contact your advisor to discuss whether the course would be appropriate. Suggested Course Lists can be found under the MHMSS Important Documents - Graduation tab.
