Environmental Health General Program

Students are admitted to the General Program in Environmental Health when they are looking for a program of study that does not fit precisely with the concentrations defined in the environmental health sciences major. Emphasis is on the development of a broad, solid foundation in environmental health, with a larger than usual number of elective credits to allow the student an opportunity to pursue their particular interests.

Planning such a program requires careful discussion between the student and faculty adviser. It is possible for students to transfer into a concentration after admission to the general program, although applicants to the general program should not assume that they will easily be able to transfer into another concentration.

The General Program concentration is offered as an MPH degree.
