Environmental factors and sustainable development are the predominant determinants of health in individuals and communities. Proper environmental management is the key to protecting public health and avoiding most preventable illnesses, which are directly caused by environmental factors. The environment influences our health in many ways, including through exposure to physical, chemical, and biological risk factors, and through related changes in our behavior in response to those factors. The Master of Public Health with a concentration in Environmental Health is a terminal, professional degree that prepares students for practice-oriented careers in environmental health and management, with an emphasis on examining environmental factors and environmental policies that affect the health and sustainable environments of communities.
