Advising and Office Hours
Fall 2013 Office Hours
Advising serves a couple of purposes. One is to assist students with course selection each quarter. A second is to provide career advice to students who may be wondering "what to do" with their GEMS degree. This might be advice about graduate school or about possible jobs. Please contact the Department Chair, Dr. S. Terri Gomez in person (94-363) or by email.
- Double majors: Starting Fall 2013, students may not pursue one additional major and/or a maximum of two minors if all declared programs may be completed within 36 units above the units required for the primary major. Students must submit a plan demonstrating that they can meet this restriction with their change of major form or minor course approval form. The plan must be verified and signed by the department chair and associate dean associated with the major or minor.
- Unit Caps: Starting Fall 2012, students are capped at 13 units during regular registration periods. Students are only allowed to add more units during the Add/Drop period. Seniors within 20 units are the only exception to this rule.
- Seniors: In order to graduate, majors must enroll in Senior Internship OR Senior Thesis. These are both a two-quarter sequence only offered in Fall and Winter. Students must enroll in both quarters.
