Advising

Introduction

Faculty and staff in the Department of Public Health at Fresno State believe that good advising is the single most underestimated characteristic of a successful college experience and is integral to the retention and graduation of our students. As such, the department is committed to providing a superior advising experience for our students.

Academic Advising

Students in the Department of Public Health are assigned an advisor based on their option (e.g., community health, environmental/occupational health and safety, or health administration) and based on the first letter of their last names.  The following information provides a breakdown for the advisors in the department.
