CSM Advising & Resource Center (ARC)
This is advising specifically for EES majors related to classes or potential careers
within the geosciences.
Every EES student should have a major advisor. This major advisor is a professor within
the EES Department who, ideally, specializes in a field of study you are interested
in so that you can make the best of your time as a student. If you want to switch
major advisors at any point in your time at Fresno State, you may do so without filing
any formal paperwork – just start meeting with your new major advisor.
Find a major advisor who understands YOU!
It’s essential to find a major advisor who understands your career goals, passions,
and values. Sometimes the professor who specializes in the specific field a student
is interested in does not necessarily understand what drives a student to succeed.
If you think a different major advisor understands you better, and that is more important
to you than their specialty, then switch your major advisor.
What career are you interested in?
It’s important to pick a major advisor who specializes in the field you are interested
in because this professor can help you decide which classes to take, determine what
kinds of skills may be necessary for such careers, and figure out whether you will
need further education or certifications.Faculty Research Specialties
