The environmental health certificate program provides a foundation in public health training for students who would like to obtain a focus area in environmental health.

The students who will benefit from this certificate will be majors that are related to the public health field, and students who want to officially show a specialized area of public health in their education, such as students in sociology, psychology, criminology and biology or chemistry majors.

This certificate program would enhance a student's chance of getting into a public health master's program, in conjunction with their major, and also in obtaining a job in a Public Health Department at the city, state and federal level, or a health related organization that deals with public health issues related to the environment.

This certificate programs can be taken by students in all majors, including Public Health students.

This certificate program will allow students to show an area of concentration on their transcript.

We encourage all students to consider this certificate as a way to increase knowledge about this areas of study which may lead to work in a Public Health related area.
