Support for students
Academic advisors are committed to engaging, encouraging, equipping, and empowering students to explore and excel in the university environment and beyond. Your academic advisor will encourage you to find academic areas and courses that are the best fit for you. We believe advising is a collaborative process because in the end, you are responsible for your educational experience.
Advisors in the Clayton H. Riddell Faculty of Environment, Earth, and Resources are available on a year-round basis to answer any questions you may have regarding your academic program in the Riddell faculty. They will refer you to other sources on campus as required.
The faculty office hours are Monday through Friday from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. unless otherwise posted.

You should begin thinking about your focus area during your second year.
A focus area is an individualized approach to undergraduate education. The student, in collaboration with a student advisor, will organize a body of courses from several subject fields around a central theme, topic, or set of related issues.
Through student driven research and by identifying areas and careers that you are interested in, you will be able to develop a focus area to acquire the knowledge and skills required to enter further research programs and the workforce.
