Academic Advising

Advisor Contact Information

Global Affairs faculty and staff are available to assist you with all of your academic advising needs! Students are assigned a faculty advisor by last name. Please contact the Graduate Coordinator at globalma@gmu.edu to verify who your advisor is.

Why Contact your Advisor?

Your advisor is available to assist with everything from course planning and identifying the appropriate specialization, to suggestions for research and professional development.

Along with advisor consultation, all students must track their progress through the online degree evaluation, Degree Works, in Patriot Web. The degree evaluation is the audit maintained by the Registrar's Office which tracks course completion. It should be checked each semester before and after registration to ensure that enrolled courses are meeting requirements. Students should contact globalma@gmu.edu with any questions related to how courses are displayed in Degree Works.
