MAP advisor

All students are assigned a MAP advisor in their first semester, who will be with them over their four years at Wheaton. Your MAP Advisor will be in touch with you regularly to offer guidance and support, answer questions, help you explore your goals inside and outside of the COMPASS curriculum and connect with the right partners on campus.

 

Major advisor

Once a student declares a major at Wheaton, he or she will be assigned a major faculty advisor. Assigned by the departments, major advisors help students find courses inside and outside of the major that fit their field of interest, find faculty who share their academic focus, and assist students in setting and making progress on their postgraduate goals.

 

Other Resources

General academic advising and academic workshops are also available through the professionals located in the Marshall Center for Intercultural Learning. Students interested in study away opportunities may consult one of the advisors in the Center for Global Education. Both peer and professional advisors are available to assist Wheaton students as they explore global learning opportunities.

Students uncertain about their majors or students ready to explore the life and career implications of their identified majors may wish to consult an advisor in Career Services. They assist students seeking out-of-class learning opportunities, service learning, jobs and summer stipends, in addition to helping students explore the life and career implications of a range of academic choices.
