Advising Faculty (Tier 3)

Faculty advisors are faculty in Linguistics, Philosophy, and Psychology based on faculty research and teaching interests. Although all tracks are interdisciplinary, each has a particularly heavy concentration of courses in one of the sponsoring units, and advisors for a given track are primarily selected from that unit. 

After declaring the major each student will meet for "Initial meeting" with the appropriate advisor who will help select her or his path and where appropriate suggest a different advisor who may be a better mach for the student's interest.
