Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.)

Ph.D. Student Haotian Wu

Note: The Environmental Health Sciences department is no longer asking for Graduate Record Exam (GRE) scores as part of the application.

The PhD Program in the Department of Environmental Health prepares a student with highly specialized and applied research skills that seek to better understand the links between environmental exposures and human health outcomes.  

The program considers for admission qualified candidates only after they have found a department faculty member willing to mentor them on a funded research project. If you are considering our doctoral program and have specific questions, contact ehsadmissions@umass.edu.

Applicants must have a background in natural sciences, engineering, or a closely related field. In addition to the major concentration in Environmental Health Sciences, the student selects a minor in either Public Health or another appropriate Ph.D. granting department within the university.
