Latina/Latino Studies

Major department advisors answered a few questions to assist you with your first-semester class selection. 

General Information

When should I first meet with my major department? As soon as possible
How will I be assigned to a major advisor and how do I contact them? There is no protocol for assigning students to faculty advisor. Students will typically come to the Chair’s office or they contact a professor they’ve taken classes with and with whom they feel comfortable.
Where can I find information about major advising?

You can go to our latinos@sfsu.edu location, or contact our AAS Gabriel Segovia-Mcgahan in EP 103.

We do have posted in EP 103 office hours and phones, emails etc for our faculty.

Does this major require any pre-work from me before I attend orientation or register for classes? Not applicable.
What should I do if my major core and/or prequisite courses are full? Make LTNS core courses a priority when signing up, but also, if they are a graduating senior they can petition the professor to be admitted into a highly-enrolled class
Is there anything else I need to know about starting in this major? Students should have their forms completely filled out before they meet with the advisor/faculty to expedite the advising session.
