Advisement is a critical component of the MDST major.  Students work closely with the MDST Faculty Coordinator and with individual faculty, Faculty Advisors, in the development of an individualized concentration.  Faculty Advisors 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 MDST Faculty Coordinator, who remains connected to each MDST student through graduation.

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).  The bonds forged between students and their MDST Faculty Advisors often lead to invaluable collaborations and academic opportunities.
