PhD in Environmental and Occupational Health (72 credits)

The PhD degree in Environmental and Occupational Health is intended to give students in-depth understanding of environmental and occupational health. The environmental/occupational research performed by students in the doctoral program covers the spectrum from toxicologically oriented research to epidemiology, risk assessment, exposure assessment, and policy formation.

The existing courses cover most of the prominent topical areas of occupational and environmental health. 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.
