Environmental Health Sciences

The Environmental Health Sciences program offers three outstanding degree programs, all with a concentration in environmental health sciences: The MS (Master of Science), MPH (Master of Public Health), and PhD.

All degree programs provide students with a rich understanding of environmental health, from its basic principles to its vast interconnectedness in the workings of our planet and human health. Course offerings also include a generous combination of research opportunities and practical job experiences.


Research in environmental health seeks to understand the effects of external influences on our health. Much of our scholarly work is done in collaboration across the university and with other institutions. Research and other funded projects in our division include:

  • Chemical properties in berries that may prevent oral cancer
  • Safety of Lake Erie water for recreation and as a source of drinking water
  • Effects of automobile traffic on human health
  • Ohio Public Health Training Center
  • Effects of air pollution reduction in Beijing during the Summer Olympics
