Master of Science (M.S.)
The M.S. degree program is intended for students in the natural sciences, medical sciences, mathematics or engineering who have a career goal in applied research or additional graduate education in Environmental Health Sciences. In addition to the three public health core courses, the M.S. student completes the four core environmental health courses, plus electives, an M.S. research thesis, and a written comprehensive examination. The M.S. degree is usually completed in four semesters plus the intervening summer. A minimum of 42 credits, including a 6-credit thesis and a culminating experience, is required.
