You will be assigned a faculty advisor to assist in planning a program that meets your educational goals, and to answer questions relating to graduate studies. The advisor will assist you until all coursework is completed and you choose a major professor to chair your MS or PhD thesis/project/dissertation or MPH integrative project. You should plan to consult with your advisor prior to registration each semester.

If, for any reason, you wish to change advisors, submit a request in writing to the director of graduate studies and provide a copy to the current advisor. Changes will be made only with the approval of the new advisor.
