About Ann Samuelson
Hi. My name is Ann Samuelson and I am an Undergraduate Academic Advisor, Sr. for the Department of American indian Studies within the College of Social and Behavioral Sciences.
I have been advising UA students for nine years. I like to assist students in figuring out what they would like to do for a career, and help them develop 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 issues.
To schedule an appointment or see my walk-in hours, go to https://sbs.arizona.edu/advising/student/login.php and login with your netid. If you don’t have a netid yet (or you are a new student), you can login on the bottom left at “Login without a netid account”. Enter the College of Social and Behavioral Sciences, then American Indian Studies,and you can schedule an appointment. My office is currently located in Room 210, the Anthropology main office in the Haury Anthropology Building (at the intersection of E. South Campus Drive and Park Avenue, just south of the University/Park intersection). In addition to my on-line hours, I post my weekly schedule on the bulletin board opposite the Anthropology main office (Haury 210).
I have a BA 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 MA 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 (CRM) for about 10 years, primarily in Montana and California, and I taught Anthropology courses at Pima Community College for four years.
