Ph.D.-Environmental Health Sciences, M.S.-Environmental Health Sciences; M.S.-Ergonomics and Biomechanics
The Program in Environmental Health Sciences provides advanced training in scientific disciplines related to environmental health, with emphasis on major health problems, such as cancer, respiratory illnesses, cardiovascular diseases, and musculoskeletal ailments. The program provides specialized knowledge in an environmental health area (biostatistics, epidemiology, ergonomics and biomechanics, exposure assessment and health effects, molecular toxicology/carcinogenesis, and toxicology), a perspective on the interrelationships of environmental health problems, and competence in a basic science. Both the M.S. and Ph.D. degrees are offered. The Department of Environmental Medicine is supported by a center grant from the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences, which has designated it as a national "Center of Excellence" for research and teaching in the environmental health sciences.
