The following faculty are advisors within the department.  Please reach out to one of us!

Faculty advisors are a very important resource in planning your schedule of courses and making sure that the courses you choose meet graduation requirements, so it's important to meet with them. It's important to note, though, that you are ultimately responsible for deciding which courses to take and whether they meet degree requirements. So, be sure to read the requirements carefully!
Things to discuss with your advisor:
Course selection for the upcoming semester
Career options
Any problems or concerns that may affect your academic performance

Faculty advisors can also assist with study abroad transfer credit.

If you are planning to take Spanish while studying abroad, the transfer advisor for that language can help you select your classes and evaluate how they will transfer back to UVM.

How are students assigned an advisor?

First-year students are assigned a professional advisor in the College of Arts and Sciences Dean's Office. Students beyond the first year who have a declared major are assigned a faculty advisor within their declared field. Minors in Spanish who wish to have a minor advisor should contact the program to request one. CAS student servics can also help with other resources, including advising and support concerning student health, writing and learning skills, general career planning, academic accommodations, and more.
