Your advisor provides information about the degree plan, course descriptions, possible careers, and internships; assists in the add/drop process; and offers one-on-one counseling in academic and related issues. The office is open year-round.  Call or email for an appointment. Walk-ins are welcome between 10:00 am – 2:00 pm. We encourage you to visit your advisor regularly.

Through academic advising we address a basic question: What can I do with a degree in Mexican American studies? We discuss the numerous graduate and professional school and career opportunities that are provided by an MAS degree. Students are introduced to the job-market options available to them, including careers in government and public service, law, teaching and academia, business, and non-profit institutions. We also counsel and advise students in developing their individual degree plan so that it will prepare them most effectively for the career they choose.

Pre-Registration Advising is required for all MAS majors.

Advising Audits

One of the best tools for advising is an advising audit. This is a computer-generated list of all your classes, as they apply to your degree plan.

You may also create and view your audits online using IDA, the Interactive Degree Audit. This option is available at all UT computers which have utACCESS, and you may also access IDA via ROSE.
