MPH in Environmental Health Sciences


This track combines broad training in environmental and occupational health with more focused exposure to applied topics and experiences that prepare students for a variety of applied or policy-oriented roles in environmental and occupational health. The track includes core courses in environmental health, epidemiology, biostatistics, health services, and social and behavioral health sciences. In addition, students are required to complete a 120-hour public health practicum and to write either a research-based master's thesis or a program project, the latter being a more applied version of a master's thesis.
