The purpose of the PhD Degree in Occupational and Environmental Health (OEH) is to train individuals interested in pursuing careers in occupational health for positions such as researchers, academic faculty, or placement in prominent businesses, insurers, and government positions that require doctoral level skills. This PhD in OEH emphasis area is designed to provide students a broad background without concentration in one area. This emphasis is particularly valuable for advanced level programmatic administration in large employers, government, and academia.

The program is primarily designed for full-time students. All PhD in OEH emphases will be a minimum 40 credit hours for those with an appropriate prior master’s degree and 64 for those without a prior master’s degree. In addition, the general OEH emphasis is designed to meet the American Board of Engineering Technologies (ABET) Applied Science Accreditation Commission (ASAC) requirements as applicable for those programs.
