Academic Advisors

With the appointed advisors, students can submit the graduation thesis/dissertation developed from the Thesis/Dissertation Guidance course, where master’s students are required for a minimum of 6 months of Thesis Guidance I and doctoral students need at least two semesters of Dissertation Guidance I & II.

       same concentration area.

   Students obtain the ‘Request for Academic Advisor Form’ from the Office of Registrar, which sends ‘the list of students
   without advisors’ to the chair of the department. Based on the ‘Request for Academic Advisor Form,’ the student will have
   an interview with the chair of the department. Considering the student’s concentration area, the chair will recommend an
   advisor to the student. Then, after an interview with the recommended advisor, the student submits the completed
   ‘Request for Academic Advisor Form’ with signatures of the advisor and the chair to the Office of Registrar for the final 
  approval of advisor appointment by the dean of the graduate school.
