Advisement is a critical part of the MDST major. Students will work closely with the Program Coordinator and with individual faculty in the development of an individualized course of study. Faculty advisors are selected because they have expertise in specific academic subject areas and are best prepared to advise students in course selection. All advisement begins with a meeting with the Program Coordinator, who remains involved throughout the process. Once accepted into the major, students will receive their registration TAP numbers from their MDST Academic Advisor (usually this will be the student’s academic advisor for Core One).
