Academic Advising


Upon admission to the Environmental Humanities program, the Director is assigned as the temporary advisor who mentors students. During the second semester of the first year, students initiate a request for a supervisory committee.

Academic Progress Plan

Students are strongly advised to use the Academic Progress Plan to monitor their progress in the program. With details on major dates and touchstones, this plan provides the roadmap for students to graduate in two years.

Student Assessment

All graduate students will be reviewed by the program faculty each year during spring semester. The purpose of the review is to assess the overall progress of each student in the program, and to identify means by which the faculty can assist each student to achieve success in the program.

Prior to the review, each student is responsible for meeting with his or her advisor to discuss particular concerns or areas of difficulty, and to provide information that can be usefully shared with the faculty at large during the review sessions. A report of the review deliberations, suggestions, and recommendations will be provided to each student.
