Advising is an important part of college education as it ensures students make progress towards their degree(s) and have a chance to consult with faculty members about opportunities to expand their skill sets and establish career goals. At the Department of International Relations, it is expected that students will meet with their advisor multiple times throughout their college career. If you are unsure who your advisor is or where to turn to for advising needs, please see below for more information.
If you are an M.A. student or are part of the SF State Scholars Blended Program, please see Prof. Skonieczny.
If you are an International Relations major or have only an International Relations minor declared, please see the advisor you are assigned by last name below.
Please see your minor coordinator if you are earning a minor or certificate in:
- Migration and Refugee Studies
- Global Peace, Human Rights, and Justice Studies
- Middle East and Islamic Studies
- South Asian Studies
- African Studies
- European Studies
- Latin American Studies
Please note that Prof Scott Siegel will be on sabbatical for Fall 2023, and Professor Monshipouri will be on sabbatical for Spring 2024.
