CASL Graduate Advising
Current Graduate Students
Academic advising is primarily done by Program Directors with expertise in the area and with the support of our knowledgeable staff. Our collaborative advising model not only addresses accessibility and availability, but also provides a comprehensive and effective advising experience for our graduate students.
Please view our Graduate Programs page to see admissions criteria, program requirements and more. In addition, you can find information about relevant graduate programs and campus policies in the Graduate Catalog.
CASL Graduate Advisors
Your faculty advisor can help with course planning and developing a study plan that fits your degree requirements with your individual learning goals. All students are strongly encouraged to meet with their advisor upon admission to develop a plan of study. This plan will chart your courses through graduation and meeting with your advisor to create your plan will enable you to discuss other critical matters related to your success in the program.
Your program director serves as your initial advisor. Once you have started the program, they may work with you to select an advisor who most closely relates to your research interests and career goals. You can schedule an appointment with your advisor via email.

New students should reach out to the program director to discuss the Graduate Thesis option, as well as to develop a plan of study that is tailored to their interests and career goals. Students interested in pursuing the Thesis option must enroll in CRJ 518 (Criminal Justice Research Methods) and are strongly encouraged to do so no later than their second semester of study.

New students should register for PAPP 505 (Introduction to Public Administration) during your first fall semester and PAPP 502 (Politics of Public Policy) during your first winter semester of enrollment. If you are registering for more than one class, the other core courses – PAPP 540, 560, 580 and 586 – are good candidates, though they are not offered all semesters.
Course Planning and Registration
Each term it is important to check on your degree progress in Degree Works as you plan for registration. These resources can help you plan your schedule both independently and as you consult with your advisor.
Your program’s webpage may have more information on course schedules, recommended course sequencing, and more.
