Each student in the program will work with a graduate adviser, a
faculty adviser, and a major professor.
The admissions committee identifies a primary and secondary
adviser for each student. These faculty advisers agree, prior to
admission, to take on the responsibility of assisting the student
in meeting academic goals. Faculty advisers are Graduate Group
members who have research interests compatible with those
expressed by the student and whose primary responsibility it is
to help students plan a program in the field of emphasis.
The Advising Form is a record used to document student progress.
The form allows space to list the prerequisite coursework, the
methodology course requirements, and the core foundation
requirements. Additional space is provided on the form for
recording the emphasis program.
