Faculty Advisors

Faculty Advisors can:

  • Provide information on the specialization, and can assist you in planning for completing the specialization course requirements. 
  • Sign Course Waiver Request forms to grant access into courses that you cannot add in WebAdvisor due to restrictions or missing prerequisites (approval is not guaranteed). Course Waiver Request Form which can be found at this link under the "Forms for Undergraduate Students Only" heading.
  • Approve or deny substitutions for courses required for the specialization.  A signature is also required from a BA Academic Counsellor, but the faculty advisor must be approached first to assess the course you want to substitute, and sign for approval.
  • Can advise on about careers and further education in the discipline, or refer you to another faculty member to discuss career direction and the graduate school application process, etc.
If you cannot contact a faculty advisor by email or by going to their department office and finding posted office hours, contact the department office undergraduate administrative assistant.
