Department of
Environmental & Occupational Health
At New Brunswick

Master of Public Health (MPH) in Environmental Health Sciences
(45 credits)

The MPH degree in Environmental Health Sciences provides students with a clear understanding of the role of this core discipline in public health with sufficient knowledge of the theory and terminology used by the discipline to allow effective participation in interdisciplinary public health efforts, and specialized skills.

The Department offers both a broad and a focused educational experience. From the core survey course to the specialized courses on air pollution and occupational health, there are extensive opportunities for both the specialist and the general student to master the complex body of knowledge that underlies environmental and occupational health. The Department provides Masters-level students with a solid foundation for expanding professional skills, for career advancement, and for pursuing doctoral-level training.

The existing courses cover most of the prominent topical areas of environmental health sciences. In a number of cases, there are sequences of related courses to assure that students develop some depth of knowledge in selected areas, while not sacrificing a generalist’s approach to most of the knowledge in their field.
