MPS Graduate Student Advisors

Each MPS student selects or is assigned a faculty advisor. Students are not required to, but may form a committee by adding more faculty members to help him or her develop a comprehensive plan of study, consistent with the formal requirements of the degree. The advisor or committee also approves and guides the student's problem-solving project and appraises his or her progress by means of oral or written examinations.

MPS Graduate Field Assistants

Graduate field assistants (GFAs) help students, faculty members, and the Director of Graduate Studies.  The GFAs serve as liaisons between students and faculty members. They are familiar with campus resources and can answer many questions about the degree process. Your GFA also can help you with paperwork and clarify your student status. Please contact a Graduate Field Assistant for more information.
