Master of Public Health in Environmental Health Science
Environmental Health Science is a multi-faceted field incorporating a variety of professionals, including engineers, hydrologists, industrial hygienists, toxicologists, epidemiologists, and molecular biologists. Environmental health professionals typically hold positions in industry, in compliance programs or as health safety officers; in consulting firms performing environmental monitoring or audits; in not-for-profit organizations as researchers and/or advocates; or in government in the areas of inspections and permits, water quality, food, sanitation, or air quality.
The MPH in Environmental Health Science provides the conceptual framework and practical tools to recognize and address environmental hazards.
