College of Health and Human Sciences
Preparation for a career in occupational health sciences requires a well-coordinated, multidisciplinary education, with a curriculum based on a strong foundation in mathematics, the physical sciences, engineering, and the health sciences. This program stresses background in the basic sciences, specific courses in occupational health, and a "hands on" industrial hygiene experience gained through laboratory exercises in environmental monitoring, field trips, and internships.
