While most universities and colleges consider the major area of concentration the "Major,"
at Caltech we call that the undergraduate "Option".
We also have a first-rate graduate program.
The Option Rep is the professorial faculty member who serves as:
a point of general consultation for undergraduate students, who also have individual academic advisors as per the registrar.
the official academic advisor for graduate students in the first and second years,
until they sign up with a thesis advisor.
a resource as needed for more senior graduate students, who also have a research/thesis advisor/s.
As a Caltech Ay student, you are welcome at any time to come and talk to me, especially if you have a problem.
