Schedule an Advising Appointment

College of Design academic and career advisors work with all disciplines within the college. Our approach to advising is student-centered, caring, holistic, inclusive, and culturally aware. We provide a safe, respectful, and confidential space in which to ask questions, discuss your interests, and express any concerns.

Career Advising for Undergraduate and Graduate Students

Career advising and education is available to help students from their first through their final year explore and develop career goals, design an internship/job search strategy, create career application materials, and strengthen interviewing skills. Students can schedule an individual appointment (instructions below), enroll in 1-credit career development courses (DSGN), and access resources through the Career Services website.

Our team of advisors works with all of our College of Design majors and minors, as well as prospective and exploring students.
