Academic Advising Question of the Week

Why is a relationship with my academic advsior one of the most important elements of my college career?

Academic advising is about so much more than the functions of scheduling classes and preparing degree plans! Good academic advising assists students in clarifying personal and career goals, developing consistent educational goals, and evaluating the progress toward established goals. Academic advising utilizes the resources of the University and refers students to the appropriate support services. It is a decision -making process in which the sharing of information between student and advisor promotes responsible and appropriate choices and facilitates a successful academic experience as well as providing a foundation for success beyond graduation.

We offer combined B.S./M.S. programs in Biology, Chemistry, Computer Science and Marine Biology and Coastal Sciences, and a B.S./PharmD program in biochemistry, biology, chemistry, and molecular biology. On the graduate level, a M.S. Chemistry/M.B.A. is available for dedicated and motivated students who want to obtain both degrees in a shorter period of time. We also were one of the first universities to offer an interdisciplinary degree in science informatics.

Perhaps you didn’t know that CSAM offers the only Ed.D. in mathematics education in the state, which prepares students for careers as mathematics educators, developers and leaders.
