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 course will be offered each T&D term (4 times/year) and will focus on different college groupings each term. The Winter 2018 offering will include Franklin College of Arts & Sciences and the Odum School of Ecology. 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.
