Faculty Advisors

 

Faculty advisors are available to students declared in Mathematics, Applied Mathematics, and Mathematics with a Concentration in Teaching.

 

The current Faculty advisor office hour list

 

The faculty advisor counsels students on the academic content of the Math or Applied Math major programs. The Faculty Advisor's signature is required to confirming approval of courses that are not already pre-approved to be used for the major electives. Appropriate questions for the faculty advisor include selection of electives and preparation for graduate-level courses in a specific mathematical area. Be sure and let them know if you are considering graduate work in or related to mathematics, and solicit help in how best to prepare.

 

Peer Advisors

The Mathematics Peer Advising Program is on hiatus for the 2021-22 academic year. The program will resume in the near future. 

 

The Peer Advisors also have a blog, which can be found at https://guide.math.berkeley.edu/
