CLASS showcases degrees
The College of Liberal Arts and Social Sciences showcased its numerous majors and minors at the second annual Instant CLASSic on Thursday, which was hosted at the University Center First Floor and Arbor.
With more than 27 majors and minors, advisors were present to promote their department’s degrees, giving students an opportunity to learn more about the programs within CLASS and helping direct their future at UH.
Megan Pavageau, the vice president of the Sociology Student Association, discussed her organization with students.
“We host interdisciplinary panel discussions every year that are relevant to our major,” said Pavageau. “We try to integrate sociology in the real world because a lot of people don’t really know what we do.”
Sociology graduate advisor Steila Grigorian and Landis Odoms, the advisor for anthropology and cultural studies, were present to discuss their department’s concentrations.
The advisors explained that they look out for students by helping them see if a major is a good fit. They talked to visitors about degree requirements, prerequisites and technical information, such as credit hours and necessary classes.
In addition, they explained job prospects, as well as long term career opportunities that certaindegrees can offer.
