Advising

The Department's designated faculty advisors are prepared to assist you in planning your studies in Political Science.  Advising office hours are scheduled multiple times per week during the academic year, from the first week of the quarter through the end of reading week.

Advisors are not assigned in the Political Science Department. Students are welcome to meet with any advisor.

During the summer quarter and school breaks, students may contact the Undergraduate Program Coordinator, Libby Wait (elizabeth.wait@northwestern.edu) with advising questions or to schedule a meeting.
