Description
Even as an experienced advisor, do you sometimes wish you could do more to help a student who says that he or she is interested in a major in a completely different college? This advanced level certificate class is designed to provide advisors with a greater level of knowledge about the most popular degree programs at UGA. You may never be an expert on all of these majors, but you will leave this class with the ability to have meaningful conversations with your students about many of the other majors they may be interested in pursuing. This class will provide information on the College of Education, the College of Family and Consumer Sciences, the College of Public Health, and the School of Social Work. Pre-requisite: This program is designed for academic advisors who have completed the Certificate in Academic Advising and/or have been working as an academic advisor for 2 or more years.
