- Ask an Adviser: As Departmental Representative for Anthropology in spring 2014, Professor Clark-Deces can help you decide whether Anthropology is right for you. You're invited to discuss with her your interests and considerations before you make your decision. If you decide to major in Anthropology, Prof. Clark-Deces will review your course history and sign your course enrollment worksheet for Fall 2014.
How to contact Prof. Clark-Deces: If you are taking a class with Prof. Clark-Deces this semester, please see her before or after class. Otherwise, you may send her an email at email@example.com. She will be seeing students on Thursday, April 17, between 10:00 and noon and again between 4:30 and 6:00 pm. You can confirm a time for April 17th by email or, if you are unable to meet on that day, please offer several alternative days/times that work for you. Prof. Clark-Deces's office is in Aaron Burr Hall, Room 132. Before your course advising meeting, please review your own academic record and make sure you're aware of which departmental and distribution requirements you still need to fulfill. Also consult the course offerings for fall and make your provisional selections. Please bring to your advising meeting (1) a copy of your internal transcript printed from SCORE and (2) two copies of your course enrollment worksheet for the fall semester, completed as much as possible. After your advising meeting, Prof. Clark-Deces will sign both copies of the worksheet. You will keep one copy for SCORE enrollment and leave one copy for the Anthropology Department's record.
- More questions? Stop by the Anthropology Department office in 116 Aaron Burr Hall or e-mail one of the department’s administrative staff members: Gabriela at firstname.lastname@example.org or Mo Lin at email@example.com.
Best wishes to you and, if you decide to major in Anthropology, welcome to the Department!
