Reflecting our strong interest in providing undergraduates with individualized guidance, all members of the Psychology faculty serve as advisors. Students are free to select any faculty advisor in psychology. Simply start contacting the faculty member of your choice. Students are encouraged to meet with their advisors to discuss career choices and to select coursework that will best prepare them for their goals as soon as they enroll at UWM. There is no need to wait until the major is officially declared to consult with a psychology advisor. Students also have an advisor for non-psychology matters in the College of Letters & Science. To obtain an advisor in the College of Letters and Science, call (414) 229-4654, or visit Holton 142.
Associate Chair of Psychology
Students are encouraged to consult with the Associate Chair of Psychology, Christine Larson (414) 229-4996 or firstname.lastname@example.org, who handles all inquiries about undergraduate matters, including course transfers, career options, admission to graduate programs in psychology, course-related questions, and special problems and grievances that arise.
Course Syllabi and Teaching Evaluations
Course syllabi and summaries of faculty teaching evaluations are available to students in the main office of Psychology, Garland 224.
