Environmental health is focused on how the environment — where we live and work, what we eat, the air we breathe, etc. — impacts human health. Our Division of Environmental Health Sciences improves the health of individuals and communities by conducting rigorous and collaborative research to identify risks, reduce hazards, and inform public health policies. We prepare future leaders through MPH, MS, and PhD degrees. Many of these degree options are STEM designated. No GRE required.
