Autumn quarter information sessions for the Environmental Health major:
TH, Oct 13 in MGH 224 at 2:30 pm
TH, Nov 17 in MGH 224 at 2:30 pm
From within the School of Public Health, Environmental and Occupational Health Sciences offers a major and a minor for students interested in improving human health and human interactions with the environment. Students in environmental health learn how to apply the tools of science to solve real problems in our community by exploring topics such as healthy food and drinking water, reducing air and noise pollution, on-the-job exposure to hazardous substances and unsafe conditions, the spread and control of animal-borne illness, effects of pesticides, and the effects of global warming on human health.
Environmental Health students enjoy small classes, a 400-hour internship, and three areas of interest to focus their coursework. This is a great science major for those who are looking for immediate work in the field after graduation or who plan to pursue a graduate or professional degree in health sciences or other areas.
Admission to the major is quarterly and our next application deadline is this Friday, October 14. We have room in the major now for new students and are exploring an early admission option.
