Doctoral Minor in Environmental Health Science

The 12-hour curriculum for the Ph.D. minor in Environmental Health Science provides students with a foundation in the identification and control of environmental hazards that can adversely affect human health and environmental quality.  Students desiring to pursue a minor in Environmental Health Science must have completed at least one semester of inorganic chemistry and one semester of organic chemistry or biological chemistry.

Required Courses

The core course:  PBHL-P519 - Environmental Science for Public Health (3 cr.)

Plus three courses from the following list:

PBHL Environmental Toxicology (Prerequisite:  Chemistry for Environmental Health Professionals) (3 cr.)

PBHL Environmental Health Risk Assessment in Public Health (Prerequisite:  Environmental Toxicology) (3 cr.)
