Curriculum Philosophy for Public Health and Public Health Sciences

"To develop human resources to be morally literate as well as to promote life-long learning for more capability in responding to the needs and in sustainably helping solve the social problems on public health via quality"

"พัฒนาทรัพยากรมนุษย์ให้มีความรู้คู่คุณธรรม และส่งเสริมการเรียนรู้ตลอดชีวิต มีความสามารถในการตอบสนองความต้องการและแก้ไขปัญหาของสังคมในด้านวิทยาศาสตร์สาธารณสุขอย่างมีคุณภาพและยั่งยืน"

The program (public health and public health sciences) actively supports students working with faculty to help navigate the program and achieve their educational goals. Students are assigned a faculty general advisor early in their first semester that they will work with throughout their time at the CPHS.


During orientation, all faculty members meet with new students to help them choose their first semester classes. At that time, you will complete a short survey that will provide us with further information about your interests and needs. Based on your responses and faculty availability, you will be assigned an advisor and notified by e-mail. If you cannot attend the orientation prior to your first semester, please contact the deputy dean for academic affair or director of academic affair and he or she will make alternate arrangements for you to register and meet as needed with faculty. You may ask to change your general advisor at any time, especially if your interests change or your fieldwork is compatible with a particular professor’s experience.

The program supports the following principles of advising:


Responsibilities of the Student Advisee:
o Know who your advisor is!
o Identify a mutually agreed upon framework for timely and periodic meetings with your advisor.
o Review degree requirements, suggested course sequences, and pre-requisites for individual courses. Be sure to allow time to make an appointment to meet with your advisor during registration.
o Contact your advisor within the planning period before the next semester to review your course selections.
o Consult with your advisor about changes in scheduling, dropping or withdrawing from courses, academic issues, or fieldwork plans.
o Plan ahead to allow enough time to identify a valuable fieldwork opportunity and research, and to discuss possible choices with your academic advisor.


Responsibilities of the Academic Advisor:
o Learn about your advisee and understand their goals and interests.
o Agree to an appointment to talk to the advisee in person, via e-mail, or by phone during the planning period prior to each semester and assist in the selection of courses including qualify examination (QE) for PhD students.
o After the student’s first semester, for the advisee to register for the next semester’s classes.
o Verify that the advisee meets the degree requirements.
o Advise student on fieldwork and research and scholarship and funding opportunities.
o Refer students to appropriate individuals or offices that provide resources and assistance.
