Academic Advising. The faculty advising system is a crucial and integral part of an Albright education. The advising process helps you as a student to plan and complete an academic program that satisfies your individual needs and goals. Your advisor can help you to understand the value of a liberal arts education and to explore the relationships among your academic coursework, your personal goals, and the opportunities and responsibilities of the larger world, including the world of work.  If you have questions, contact Dr. Joseph Thomas in Academic Affairs.

The Albright Alpha Program, for students who are undecided about their major; Alpha students are partnered with faculty advisors and other resources to maximize their exploration of the liberal arts education and career planning that Albright offers. If you have questions, contact Laura Kline in Career Services.

The Experiential Learning and Career Development Center offers a variety of services for students, alumni and employer. The Center assists students in exploring majors, careers, and experiential learning opportunities that enhance Albright's core learning goal of "engaging the world." Experiential learning is a "hands-on" approach to education that is personally relevant and connected to students' academic learning objectives. Albright students participate in experiences such as internships, study abroad/off-campus study, service learning, and undergraduate research.  The career development process helps students make meaning from their experiences and education, leading to greater personal satisfaction and professional success. If you have questions, contact Karen Evans in the ELCDC.
