The environmental health field of study is vast and can lead to a wide variety of career opportunities. To assist students in pursuing their specific interests and developing toward their specific careers, the ERHS department has developed combined BS/MS degrees and partnered with other departments to develop interdisciplinary minors.
An Bachelor of Science in environmental health is an applied science that prepares students for employment by public sector environmental agencies, private industry, academic institutions, as well as graduate study in medicine, veterinary medicine, and related biomedical and health fields.
A combined BS/MS program in health physics results in a Master of Science in environmental health in five years with a specialization in health physics. The BS in environmental health is accredited through the National Environmental Health Science and Protection Accreditation Council.
