What will I learn?

Environmental health is the study of how exposures to external hazards, including chemical, physical, and biological agents, affect human health. Environmental health researchers and professionals seek to understand how to evaluate exposures that create risk to human health, how those exposures elicit biological responses that lead to disease and injury, and how policy is developed and used to prevent adverse health effects. This program offers academic programs at the master's and doctoral levels, conducts research in diverse areas of environmental health, offers continuing education, and conducts outreach. The academic programs prepare students to be leaders in environmental health in academia, industry, consulting groups, and government agencies. The program's training and research emphasizes the importance of translating basic scientific knowledge into solutions for current societal problems and concerns.

The School of Public Health (SPH) and College of Biological Sciences (CBS) offer an early-admission opportunity for eligible University CBS students interested in completing the MPH Environmental Health degree.
