Academic Advising: Assistant Deans Danyelle Thurman, Jennifer Thiel, and Francis Clark.  Use this office only if you are an undeclared major.  Information about Academic Advising is located at the following:

Once you have declared your major (visit the Registrar’s Office to declare your major), see a departmental advisor in your area of concentration and choose one of the following listed below for general education requirements:

Departmental AdvisorsArea
Dr. Martin Rosenberg Gen. Ed., Art, Art History
Dr. Joseph C. Schiavo Gen. Ed., Art, Art History, Music, and Theater
Dr. Julianne Baird Music
Dr. Mark Zaki Music
Prof. Paul Bernstein Theater
Dr. Kenneth Elliott Gen. Ed., Theater
Prof. Allan Espiritu Electronic Art Core Curriculum, Graphic Design
Prof. Ken Hohing Studio and Electronic Art Core Curriculum, Photography
Prof. LiQin Tan Electronic Art Core Curriculum, Animation
Prof. Margery Amdur Studio Art Core Curriculum, Painting
Prof. Elizabeth Demaray Studio Art Core Curriculum, Sculpture/Ceramics

You should see a departmental advisor at least twice a year before and during pre-registration periods.  Graduating seniors must make an appointment with the Department Chair for senior review (generally in February).   Specific dates and times for senior reviews will be posted in the fine arts office and sent via e-mail to all fine arts students.

Degree Navigator, an online system for students to evaluate their academic progress toward their degree.
The program allows students to track general education and departmental requirements that have been met or those that remain.  Please note: the Degree Navigator program is not a substitute for seeing a departmental advisor.   Also, majors in electronic art should note that Degree Navigator defaults to Studio Art.

When making an appointment, please bring with you the following:

  1. A copy of your most recent unofficial transcript, which is available at
  2. Your preferred schedule (e.g., day courses, evening courses, or both)
  3. A list of questions if you might want to ask
  4. A tentative course schedule you might have in mind before your meeting. 
  5. Transfer students meeting with a departmental advisor for the first time should bring, if available, the transfer credit evaluation from the Registrar’s Office and transcripts from their previous institutions, with courses marked for transfer evaluation.  It would be a good idea to bring the school’s catalog, course descriptions, course syllabi, or texts with you to help your advisor evaluate specific courses in your program.
