Academic Advising

The Journalism Program schedules group advising sessions each semester, but majors also are encouraged to schedule one-on-one meetings with a Journalism faculty member for individualized attention at least one a year. Email Journalism Program Director Cheryl Gibbs to set up your one-on-one advising session.

The first-year Media & Culture advisor is Dr. Howard Kleiman. His office is 150 Williams Hall. Please contact Dr. Kleiman at (513) 529-3545 or via email to make an appointment. Upper-class Media & Culture majors are assigned a major advisor. Those advisors are Drs. Ron Becker, Bruce Drushel, Kathleen German, Howard Kleiman, Lisa McLaughlin, Ron Scott and David Sholle.

If you wish to change your advising assignment, please contact the Media & Culture master administrator, Kim Hensley, in 120 Williams Hall. We cannot guarantee we can accommodate your request, but will make every attempt to do so.

To plan and discuss completion of your College of Arts & Science and Miami Plan course requirements, schedule an appointment with an advisor in the College's Advising Office, 146 Upham Hall. It's a busy, busy place, so it would be wise to call (513) 529-3031 with plenty of lead time in order to get your desired appointment time.
