Students in the MS program should have previous training in the basic sciences. Undergraduate major degrees are usually in biology, chemistry, physics, mathematics, or environmental sciences (or any of the sub disciplines – e.g. biochemistry). These students are strongly focused on specific research studies of interest, and have identified a faculty mentor willing to support their research project in Environmental Health Sciences.
A successful student will leave the program with expertise in a number of disciplines, as well as specific training in one of three broad concentrations: Environmental & Molecular Epidemiology, Environmental Monitoring & Exposure Science, or Environmental Toxicology.
