The Klingler College of Arts and Sciences is, by its very nature, the heart of Marquette University. We challenge students to explore many ways of understanding, doing and succeeding – regardless of the major they decide to pursue.
We recognize that our students are faced with both challenges and opportunities. To assist in the transition from high school to college, as well as along college and career paths, the college offers numerous resources ranging from individualized advising to academic support services to career exploration and development. These resources are designed to help students develop the knowledge and skills they need to succeed, as well as to introduce them to the faculty, advisers and staff throughout the college who are available to guide them pursue excellence through a liberal arts education.
Academic Success Workshops
The Klingler College of Arts and Sciences Advising Center sponsors a series of workshops to help first-year students succeed academically. These workshops are offered every term and focus on such topics as stress management, major exploration, study skills, test-taking techniques and time management.
The Klingler College of Arts and Sciences Advising Center is run by a team of professional academic advisers committed to serving students and helping them achieve success. This center offers comprehensive assistance for students' development and is open five days a week, all year long. Students are assigned an adviser and receive service and support in a wide variety of ways. The advisers can assist students in choosing a major, determining career and academic goals, developing study skills, selecting courses and creating a class schedule, preparing for graduate and professional school, and connecting them with other campus resources.
Explore the Majors Fair
The Klingler College of Arts and Sciences Advising Center sponsors the annual “Explore the Majors” Fair to encourage and assist freshmen and sophomores who are undecided about their areas of study to explore the many majors and minors in the college. The “Explore the Majors” Fair provides an excellent opportunity for students to discuss majors and minors with faculty representatives, juniors and seniors majoring in the discipline, and alumni from every area in the Klingler College of Arts and Sciences.
Norman H. Ott Memorial Writing Center
The Ott Writing Center offers one-to-one tutoring to all Marquette students, staff and faculty on all kinds of writing projects from first year English papers to graduate theses, from history papers to personal statements for law school. The center is staffed with a mix of graduate students from a variety of departments, as well as undergraduate peer tutors. Graduate students from English also usually teach a section of ENGL 1001 Foundations in Rhetoric.
