The Master of Science (MS) in Environmental Health prepares graduates to work as program or project managers, as staff scientists or research associates, or to pursue a doctoral degree. As awareness of environmental influences on human health increases among policy makers and the public, opportunities for graduates to make a difference are expanding. These opportunities are found in state and federal agencies, town governments, nonprofit organizations, environmental consulting firms, university settings, and industry. Students focus in one of four substantive areas: (1) environmental epidemiology, (2) urban and community environmental health, (3) toxicology, or (4) exposure and risk assessment. MS candidates must complete a total of 48 credits with a minimum grade of B in each required course. The degree must be completed in five years. All students take a common set of seven required courses and must earn a B or better in all seven courses.
