Advising and Academic Resources
Students will be assigned advisors upon admission to the program and will be informed of the name of their advisor prior to the start of the program. Students are assigned to faculty advisors to achieve equitable distribution among the faculty. However, students are free – indeed, encouraged – to seek advice from any faculty members with whom they feel most comfortable.
Students are strongly advised to consult their academic advisors about the content and sequence of their curriculum, especially where the choice and sequencing of electives are concerned. From our graduate program directors and faculty mentors to departmental and SPHHS staff, we are here to help you address your academic questions and concerns and make the most of your UMass Amherst education.
