The Liberal Studies offices (one at MB 1503, one at MI 3035) on the Hayward Hills campus are open Monday through Friday according to the schedule below. Immediately after you declare Liberal Studies as your major, you should seek advising from these four Liberal Studies advisors for course planning, according to the first letter of your last names in the following way:

  1. A - F     Mandy Thind
  2. G - L     Terry Cunningham
  3. M - R     Wendy Couttien
  4. S - Z     Michelle Xiong

After your initial advising, you should contact your advisor at least once an academic year afterwards.  Your Liberal Studies advisors will review and prepare for your Major Check form (unless you are in the BPEP Program) automatically once you have applied for graduation with the university.  You may seek advising from your Liberal Studies advisor for issues about your LBST major by emails, phone calls, or scheduled or drop-in appointments in person.

All BPEP students should contact Prof. Guo directly for advising and major checks.
