Advising for Public Health-Global Health

Public Health-Global Health Major advisers assist prospective students with planning and preparing for admission to the major through individual and group advising meetings. Once admitted, students meet primarily with these advisers 1:1 about course planning, applying for graduation, and additional matters related to their academic and career planning.

Winter Updates

The PH-GH advising team will be working remotely Fri, 12/15/23 - Fri, 12/29/23*, but we will be available for Zoom appointments for students in the PH-GH Major between Fri 12/15/23 - Friday 12/22/23. Please refer to the email sent to PH-GH Major students on December 14th for the appointment scheduling information.

We will not have drop-in advising during between 12/18/23-12/29/23.

If urgent academic questions come up between December 26th through December 29th, please email phgh@uw.edu as there will be an adviser monitoring emails throughout winter break during university business hours. For non-urgent messages, expect a response after staff are back in person after Tuesday, 1/2/24 as advising will have limited staff during the winter break. Classes begin on Wednesday 1/3/24.

Advising Appointments

Current major students can schedule 1:1 advising appointments through ScheduleOnce. The link to schedule an appointment through ScheduleOnce is sent to current majors during your orientation as well as included in the Weekly Newsletter sent during the AUT, WIN, and SPR quarters. Email phgh@uw.edu if you have questions or need support accessing the advising link as a current PH-GH major.

Drop-In Advising

Drop-in advising is offered for current PH-GH majors and is a great way to have quick questions answered or to start a conversation when appointments are full. Students will be asked to sign-in while in the waiting room with a sign-in sheet that is shared among those attending in-person drop-in (when offered) and those attending drop-in via Zoom. 

Please see our appointment page on ScheduleOnce for the Zoom information and details about Current PH-GH Major Drop-in Advising.

Workshops

PH-GH advisers also host virtual workshops around community building, future planning, graduation planning, careers in public health, as well as advertising events through partners around campus. Updates for workshops are included in the PH-GH Newsletter that is released each Monday during the academic year.

Prospective PH-GH Major Students

Prospective students who are current UW students are encouraged to learn more about the major, admissions, and course planning by attending a drop-in or group advising session that best fits their understanding of the major. At any point in the quarter, prospective PH-GH students may email phgh@uw.edu with their questions.

Current UW Students Applying to the PH-GH Major

Please visit the Prospective Student Events Calendar to register for the drop-in or small group advising session using Zoom.

Prospective students may also get started with course planning by visiting our Sample Degree Sequence and Future Degree Requirements websites, and are encouraged to work with their pre-major adviser on course planning.

*The PH-GH Major is making curricular changes that will be effective starting AUT 2024 (see future degree requirements here ).  Students will be able to run a degree audit reflective of the new requirements starting SUM 2024.

Transfer Students Preparing for the PH-GH Major

Prospective transfer students planning to apply to UW may also meet virtually with a School of Public Health adviser during Transfer Thursday drop-in hours from 2:30-4:00pm. Check the Prospective Student Events Calendar for the Zoom link. Please note that Transfer Thursday advising may be held by an adviser from the PH-GH, Environmental Health, and FSNH (Food Systems, Nutrition, and Health) majors.
