Advising & Student Services
The Department of Political Science offers an array of advising and other services designed to help students succeed at UMass, and to take advantage of all the opportunities the University has to offer. Don’t be fooled by that blank space next to “Advisor” on your SPIRE account – Political Science majors simply have too many advising resources to fit into that tiny space.
