WHO TO CONTACT

FALL 2020 NOTE: Becca will be on maternity leave beginning 8/31/20 and will return 11/23/20; for the following information, please reach out to Dallas Albright for items Becca would normally assist with.

For administrative tasks like picking up or turning in major/minor declaration forms, please see Becca Snyder in the Program Office. Becca can also answer many questions about the program, including directed and independent studies, and can often see students on a drop-in basis.

For questions about whether courses can count toward the major, including courses at other academic institutions, please contact the Director of Undergraduate Studies, Liz Catania, Ph.D. It is usually best to email Dr. Catania for an appointment rather than trying to drop in at times other than posted office hours.

For questions about the honors program contact the Program Director, David Zald. Ph.D. It is usually best to email Dr. Zald for an appointment rather than trying to drop in at times other than posted office hours. Becca Snyder in the Program Office can help you schedule an appointment.

If you are unsure who to speak with, contact Becca Snyder in the Program Office and she will make sure to direct you to the right person.
