Welcome to DUS

The Division of Undergraduate Studies is the academic home for students exploring multiple academic programs before committing to a course of study. Academic advisers in DUS teach students how to:

  • understand the purposes of higher education
  • make connections between personal interests, life goals, and academic opportunities
  • think critically and question common assumptions about majors and careers
  • find educational opportunities such as study abroad programs, research assistantships, leadership activities, and internships
