Advising - Minor
Any student who decides to minor in anthropology can choose either Professor Mares or Professor VanValkenburgh as their advisor. They will let the department's administrative assistant know and she will, in turn, assign the advisor in Banner.
What does an advisor do?
Think of an advisor as your academic liaison. An advisor is meant to be an approachable faculty member, one who is also skilled in your chosen area of expertise, and who can enhance the student's relationship with the university.
Registration at UVM is done electronically, but advisors can be helpful in selecting courses, as well as explaining the organization and policies of the College and ensuring that you have fulfilled all the requirements you need to graduate.
Learn more about advising issues in the Student Guides section of our website.
