Interdisciplinary Studies: Advising

Advising for the Interdisciplinary Masters occurs at many levels. For advising regarding your overall degree, program of study, requirements, policies, and petitions the Interdisciplinary Studies staff in the College of Graduate Studies will be your point of contact. However, students are encouraged to also speak with individual department faculty they are taking courses with regarding thesis/capstone/exam committees, additional course suggestions, and future career plans as these faculty are more specialized in the field and may be able to offer more tailored suggestions.

For the overall advisement of students, staff in the College of Graduate Studies have developed advising milestones that should guide the progress of the student throughout their degree. The program coordinator will contact students regarding these, but students are also encouraged to initiate the process when they are approaching the next milestone. Additionally, individual advising appointments are offered Monday-Friday 8-5, around students’ schedules. To make an advising appointment, email GradIDS@ucf.edu
