Undergraduate Advising

How Advising Works

The College of Liberal Arts and Sciences utilizes a dual advising system, which means all declared Anthropology majors will have two advisors to guide them:

  • A faculty advisor from the Anthropology Department will work with you on academic major requirements.
  • An assigned academic advisor from the College advising office can handle educational issues such as clarification of university and college policies and procedures, core curriculum advising, transfer credits evaluation for Core Curriculum, and academic warning and probation.

Your degree progress and graduation plans are monitored and approved by both advisors.

Undergraduate Anthropology Advisor

The Undergraduate Program Advisor is Professor Tiffany Terneny. She can answer questions related to major and minor requirements, transfer issues, the honors program, and graduation.  Advising for Anthropology Undergraduates is vía appointment on Zoom. Please contact Dr. Terneny at tiffany.terneny@ucdenver.edu to set up an appointment.

When Should You Meet With an Advisor?

We encourage you to visit with the department advisor at least once during your undergraduate program; it is a good way for us to get to know one another. It is also indispensable for solving problems specific to your program and career—making sure that course(s) you took at other institutions transfer, finding out about graduate schools and talking over your career goals. So come and see us!
