Peer Advising Drop-In Hours

Peer advisers are located in 361 Social Sciences 1

PEER ADVISING PROGRAM

The Anthropology department offers a Peer Advising Program that consists of junior and senior Anthropology Majors who are trained to advise students on major and minor requirements, declaration of major, academic planning, course selection and answering a variety of questions related to the Anthropology undergraduate program. Peer advisers speak from their own experience and are an excellent resource for students trying to figure out how to tailor the major to their interests and how to get the most out of their time at UCSC.  Some peer advisers are transfer students, so they are also familiar with transfer student concerns.

Peer advisers are available for drop-in advising in the department office, 361 Social Sciences 1, each quarter. Peer advisers are available during regular drop-in advising hours (these hours are subject to change – check the calendar above or call to verify): Monday – Thursday from 9:00am – 12:00 pm and 1:00pm – 4:00pm.

Students who are interested in participating in the Peer Advising Program can pick-up an application at the department office. The department accepts applications for peer advising every quarter.  Peer advisers receive 2-units of credit per quarter for participating in the program. To apply to the peer advising program students must be declared Anthropology Majors and have junior or senior status.
