M.S. in Environmental, Safety and Health Management
The Master of Science in Environmental, Safety and Health Management (ES&H) degree is designed to provide graduates with the necessary skills to make managerial decisions and provide leadership in environmental, safety and occupational health (ESH) careers. The program combines science, engineering, policy and business concepts to prepare students.
Students can focus in three areas: emergency and disaster management, environmental management or occupational health and safety management. Note that these offerings include courses from Findlay’s master’s degree programs in environmental, safety and health management (ENVM) and education (EDHR). Students are not required to select elective courses from a single focus area, and instead are encouraged to develop breadth across several professional areas.
There are numerous work opportunities for graduate students in the environmental, safety and health management program. Opportunities exist with private firms, public corporations, and government sector offices. Whether it is working in the disaster stricken gulf coast performing cleanup operations from the hurricanes or performing safety audits of the workforce on a petrochemical plant turn around in the upper midwestern United States, UF students obtain great experience as well as a good salary during summer time or school year work experience programs.
For The University of Findlay, the regional accrediting organization that accredits the institution as a whole is the Higher Learning Commission (HLC) of the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools, the nations largest accrediting body.
The M.Sc. degree in environmental, safety and health management is also accredited by the National Environmental Health Science and Protection Accreditation Council (EHAC). EHAC develops and applies accreditation guidelines for institutions of higher education that wish to ensure premium quality education and training of environmental health science and protection practitioners.
