Although there are circumstances when you might ‘go it alone,’ talking to an advisor can save you time and ensure that you are headed in the right direction. Advising is important not only for making course and scheduling decisions, but also in your career planning. There are several advisors available for you:
The political science head advisor is a faculty member who has extensive experience helping students to navigate the degree program at Northeastern and the broader field. The head advisor is happy to speak with you about your program of study at Northeastern, career options and planning, or further education.
