The Environmental Health Science Program is designed for students with a special interest in improving the quality of man's physical environment.

Students will be prepared for careers in industrial, governmental, health care, urban affairs, and educational agencies concerned with environmental health, occupational health, public health, and community interaction.

As professional technologists students will be prepared to assist in the conduct of comprehensive environmental control programs. They will have acquired skills in laboratory and field procedures from the analysis of water, food and air pollutants.

Those satisfactorily completing the program may seek certification by continuing their studies at the graduate level. The program includes general and specialized components with a field study requirement only in the latter cases. Consequently, students may elect the General Program (no field study) or specialize by electing a concentration in either public health, industrial, or hospital environmental studies (with field study).
