I've decided on a World Languages major or minor. Now where do I get advising?

Once you are in a major/minor or near to declaring one, in most academic departments at CWU, you will have BOTH a faculty advisor and an academic support advisor. We work as a team. Together, we address all the details of your academic progress with the goals of getting you to degree completion and graduation in a timely manner.

The Major advisor will address topics such as:

  • Course choices and specialization within the major
  • Career pathways within that discipline
  • Internship and Research opportunities
  • Mentoring and letters of recommendation
  • Progress to degree completion and graduation

The academic support advisor will address topics such as:

  •  General Education (basic and breadth) requirements
  •  Progress to degree completion and graduation
  •  General academic planning
  •  Academic warning/ probation/ suspension
  •  Advising holds
