Program Requirements

Students completing a master’s minor in environmental health must complete 6 credits in environmental health, including 2 credits of PubH 6102 “Issues in Environmental Health” and 4 credits of PubH 6100 “Society, Politics and Policy.”

Students completing a doctoral minor are required to take a minimum of 14 credits in environmental health, including 2 credits of PubH 6102 “Issues in Environmental Health” and 4 credits of PubH 6100 “Society, Politics and Policy.”

Students who have already taken comparable graduate-level courses in these disciplines may use other public health courses to complete the minor requirement with the approval of the public health adviser and the director of graduate studies. Since public health courses may have prerequisites or enrollment limitations, early planning with an adviser is suggested.
