Global Environmental Health MPH

Examine global health from a public health perspective, including issues around air quality, food safety, and deforestation.

The Global Environmental Health concentration provides key information for individuals looking to work in the field of global environmental health either overseas or in the United States. Issues of water and air quality, food safety, and the effects of industrialization are examined, as well as major ecological problems such as deforestation and sustainable agriculture. Interactions between the physical environment and biological health risks are considered also, as the effects of globalization of trade and the rapid movement of populations from one part of the world to the other are important “vectors” for the spread of disease globally.

The Global Environmental Health concentration is offered as an MPH degree.
