The concentration in Environmental Health (EH) will prepare students for research and practice in the field of EH, which is the understanding of environmental factors, including biological, physical and chemical factors that affect the health of a community. EH focuses on the human health effects of agents encountered in the environment, from the molecular to the ecological level, as well as the effects of natural and human-created environments on health. The concentration will provide students with knowledge in the core EH disciplines of exposure assessment, toxicology, risk assessment, air pollution, and water pollution. In addition to these core knowledge areas, additional areas of specialization within EH include food safety, occupational health, infectious diseases, environmental epidemiology, and urban health.
