The Bachelor of Science degree in Environmental Health offers students a high caliber education in environmental health with leading faculty in their fields, at a university with a strong commitment to regional health and sustainable development.

While the practice of environmental health has a long history in sanitation, water quality and food safety, the field is rapidly evolving and expanding as scientists better understand the complex links between exposures to chemicals, radiation, pathogens, climate change and ecosystem damage and human health. Given this rapid evolution, it is an exciting time to be an environmental health practitioner and the opportunities for applying environmental health knowledge for prevention at the local, regional, national and global levels are endless.
