What do Graduates Do?
There is greater need than ever for employers to improve environmental health and workplace safety. Graduates are well-prepared to work in universities, private companies and NGOs, national and international organizations, and state and local departments of health on health protection and promotion, applied research, education, and program development.
The current job market for environmental health sciences graduates is extremely strong. Current trends shaping the field include: an increasing number of environmental and workplace hazards (including chemical, physical, psychosocial, and biological agents), governmental regulations, an increased prevalence of chronic disease and injury, public demands for healthcare reform, environmental protection and sustainability, and an increasing emphasis on global health.
