  • For information about internships, scholarships, and special events
  • To learn more about graduate or professional programs
  • For more information about career options

If you aren't certain who your faculty advisor is, contact the department office at 773.508.3047. To choose a new faculty advisor, see the department secretary in Coffey Hall 324.
