Students meeting with faculty

Academic advisement

If you are interested in majoring in sociology or anthropology, it is recommended that you have an advisor in the department. Our faculty members have broad areas of expertise, so you can take advantage of finding an advisor who shares your area of interest. To be assigned an advisor, contact the Sociology and Anthropology Department right away at 417-836-5640. If you have forgotten who is assigned as your advisor, log in to My Missouri State and select the Student tab, then Student Profile link.

Your advisor is there to help you succeed and develop a graduation plan that is right for you. Meet with your advisor at least once a semester to plan out your classes and answer your questions.
