Peer Advising

Peer advisors have their own drop-in hours, which are listed below. Peer advising should be the first stop for students interested in changing into either a Psychology or Cognitive Science major. Peer advisors can also give you insight into how your major classes will be structured, since they have taken many of the classes themselves! Most of our peer advisors are students in either their junior or senior years - they have plenty of knowledge and experience to share.
