Undergraduate Academic Advising

The Anthropology major is part of the Language, Culture, and Meaning Pathway. Students in this pathway are assigned to an advisor based on the last two digits of their PSU ID number. Please make an on-line appointment to see an advisor in the Language, Culture, and Meaning Pathway. Advisors are taking appointments, via phone or zoom, and are ready to help you navigate all questions related to meeting requirements for your degree. 

​​​​​​To make an appointment with an advisor, please visit the Language, Culture, and Meaning Pathway page.
For general advising questions, email lcmadvising@pdx.edu

We also strongly recommend Anthropology majors connect with an adviser in the Anthropology Department. All of our full-time faculty (Shelby Anderson, Michele Gamburd, Charles Klein, Jeremy Spoon, Mrinalini Tankha, and Natalie Vasey) are knowledgeable about major requirements and are happy to help you plan your course work to achieve your academic and professional goals. If you have narrowed your interests to one of the sub-fields, try to find an adviser whose background matches your main goals and meet with them once or twice per academic year.

Each faculty member's sub-discipline and open office hours are listed in the directory. No appointment is necessary during office hours. Faculty may also be available at other times by appointment. 

Undergraduate Planning Form

We have created a simple planning form for you and the adviser to use in scheduling your courses during your time at PSU.

For students that began college before Fall 2018, use this planning form.
For students entering in Fall 2018 or after, use this planning form.

We recommend that students obtain a DARS (Degree Audit Reporting System) print-out prior to an advising session, which will provide an up-to-date account of your progress. PSU has also crafted some helpful web-based information on how to navigate your way through the system and obtain a degree, including degree maps for all programs, such as the BA, BS, and minor in Anthropology.
