Welcome to CHSS

Whether you are a prospective student considering a major in CHSS, newly admitted or a current student, get to know the academic advisor for your program to discuss your interests and goals, and create a plan that works best for you.

Advising Matters in CHSS

Each CHSS program has at least one advising contact for students which you can locate by visiting our Find my Academic Advisor page here. Your academic advisor plays a key role in your success at Mason. Your advisor will empower you to take charge of your educational path and guide you towards timely graduation. 

Below are ways that you can create a strong partnership with your advisor:

  • Meet with your advisor at least once a semester to develop an academic plan and identify strategies for how to make the most of your time at Mason.
  • Discuss your interests in your field and ask about internship and research opportunities, and ways you can connect with faculty in your program.
  • Explore how to get involved in student activities and leadership opportunities that align with your goals.
