Explore the Interaction between Health and the Environment
Our environment has a major impact on our health. We depend on clean air, clean water and a safe food supply to sustain ourselves and our communities. Agriculture, transportation, construction, energy production and use, and manufacturing all have a significant impact on the environment. And all of these industries introduce situations and questions that require the expertise of trained professionals. This program provides the conceptual framework and practical tools to recognize and address environmental hazards. You will learn to address issues of air and water quality as well as solid waste and environmental and industrial toxicology.
The Department of Environmental Health Science offers the M.P.H. degree and a graduate certificate in Industrial Hygiene.
This program may be completed in a traditional classroom format or completely online or as a hybrid of both on-campus and online.
Credits required for completion: 46
