Hi. My name is Ann Samuelson and I am the Undergraduate Senior Academic Advisor II. for the School of Anthropology, the Department of American Indian Studies, and the Center for Judaic Studies within the College of Social and Behavioral Sciences.
I have a B.A. from New College in Sarasota, Florida in Cultural Anthropology, focusing on Native American Cultures; I did field research and wrote a Senior Thesis on the Chippewa-Cree tribe of northern Montana entitled "An Ethnohistory of the Montana Cree". I have a M.A. in Anthropology (Archaeology) from the State University of New York at Albany, focusing on the Maya of Central America and the prehistoric Native Americans of the High Plains (Montana, North Dakota and Wyoming). I wrote a Masters’ Thesis on prehistoric archaeological sites in Yellowstone National Park, Wyoming. Additionally I have worked as an archaeologist in the field of cultural resource management for about 10 years, primarily in Montana and California, and I have taught anthropology courses at Pima Community College.
I have been advising students for over eleven years. I love to help students figure out what they would like to do for a career, and assist them in developing an academic plan to achieve that career goal. I help students change majors, select appropriate courses to complete their degrees, prepare for graduate school, and also assist them with transferring credits, academic and personal problems, preparing for graduation, and many other opportunities.
You can schedule an appointment with me or view my walk-in hours. I also post my weekly schedule on the bulletin board opposite my office in the Haury Anthropology main office (Haury 210).
