Microbiology: Environmental Health Option
The Environmental Health Option is a nationally accredited degree program which prepares students to go directly into the environmental health workforce after graduation, or go on to graduate school in environmental health, public health, occupational health, toxicology, epidemiology, global health, etc. or go on to medical school. The interdisciplinary program of study includes environmental health science, microbiology, cell biology, chemistry, toxicology, epidemiology, risk assessment, infectious disease, anatomy and physiology, ecology, statistics and geographic information systems. All majors have the opportunity to complete a three credit internship or research experience. Some majors also complete the global health minor, the Honors College curriculum and/or the water resources minor, or double major with the medical laboratory science program or a biology or environmental science degree. Environmental health students are eligible to apply for specific scholarships and internships limited to nationally accredited degree programs such as ours. Students must have a 2.5 or better GPA to graduate in this program.
