Undergraduate Advising

There are three main academic advisors in the department, Dr. Anthony S. Alvarez, Dr. Maria Malagon, and Dr. Devon Thacker Thomas. The advisors are available to provide guidance on everything from academic planning, graduation checks, concentrations, planning for graduate school or other “next steps”, as well as how to maximize your time here in the department of Sociology at CSUF.
You may make an appointment with any advisor at the links below or come by during walk-in hours. For those who need a signature for forms, you may leave the forms at the front desk of the Sociology department in College Park (CP-900).



We offering walk-in advising hours as well as appointment-only hours.

To make an appointment, please click on the advisor's link to their individual appointment system.  Just a reminder, walk-in hours are first come, first served. Walk-in hours do not guarantee that you will meet with an advisor. Upon arrival to the Department of Sociology (College Park, 9th floor), you will sign-in at room 914 (clipboard outside of the door) for advising. The advisor will then come to get you in that waiting room based on the order of sign-ins.

Email an Advisor

You may also email the general advising email (sociologyadvising@fullerton.edu) and one of the advisors will respond within several days. If you have an emergency advising situation, you should call the department directly (657-278-3531) or clearly identify the emergency in your advising email and subject line. An advisor will get back to you as soon as possible. Note that email works best for shorter questions. Should your email require a longer response, the advisor may ask you to make an appointment or to contact them directly. Though the advisors will be checking email routinely, we do ask for your patience with response times. Thank you!
