If other advisors are not available, the Department Chairman, Prof. DiSalvo ( ) should be contacted and will address all advising questions and sign grad check forms. ​


The Political Science Department assigns a faculty advisor to each Political Science major. New majors not yet assigned to an advisor, or majors seeking a new advisor, should consult with the chair (or Deputy Chair) of the department so they can be assigned an advisor in their particular field of interest.
