AdvisingI have put this page together to provide information and resources to my undergraduate advisees in the Department of Psychology at the University of Southern Mississippi. If you come across anything you think would be helpful to others, please let me know and I'll be happy to add it here for the benefit of other students.
About the Advising ProcessIntensive advisement in the Department of Psychology takes place twice a year through the CoEP Student Advisement and Support Center, which is located in OMH 131. The Center assists students with most advising and course scheduling needs, including adding/dropping classes, selecting electives, obtaining a minor in Psychology, issues around suspension and probation, course substitutions, second degree seeking, selecting elective courses, completion of graduation paperwork, and more. To access the Student Advisement and Support Center:
MentoringMentoring can include many different topics, but some of the primary areas around which faculty mentors in our department work with undergraduate students involve assisting those who are planning to apply to graduate programs in psychology improve their chances of success, assisting students who are planning to pursue careers in psychology or closely related fields, and informing students of relevant resources and opportunities on campus. Students who are planning to apply to graduate programs are strongly encouraged to meet with their faculty advisor to discuss their plans and make sure they are on the right track.
My undergraduate advisees can now schedule mentoring appointments with me online.
