The online MPH in Environmental Health Science familiarizes students with issues of air and water quality as well as pollution, environmental law, and risk assessment. Students learn analytical and problem-solving skills as well as how to communicate with technical and non-technical groups. Environmental health science incorporates epidemiologists, toxicologists, clinicians, industrial hygienists, policy analysts, attorneys, and molecular biologists. Environmental health professionals typically hold positions in industry in compliance programs or as health and safety officers; in consulting firms performing environmental monitoring; in not-for-profit environmental organizations as researchers; or in government in the areas of inspections and permits, water quality, food, sanitation, or air quality.
The most successful applicants to our M.P.H. programs have earned a cumulative GPA of at least 3.0 in their Bachelor’s degree program. However, the GPA is only one of several factors considered.
