Undergraduate Advising

Welcome to the Fariborz Maseeh Department of Mathematics and Statistics Undergraduate Advising pages! 

Academic advising is a collaborative educational process in which students and their advisers are partners in meeting the essential learning outcomes that support student success.  This partnership requires participation and involvement of both the adviser and the student and spans the student’s whole educational experience.

Portland State utilizes both professional and faculty advisers in delivering advising for students.

Faculty advisers support students with questions about the math major, which may also include potential careers and professional opportunities within the discipline.  It is important that math majors meet with a faculty adviser prior to registering for math/stat courses in order to develop a coherent program to achieve the students’ goals.

Faculty adviser: Dr. Beatriz Lafferriere
