Master of Science (MS) in Environmental and Occupational Health Sciences
The MS in Environmental and Occupational Health Sciences program prepares students for careers in the growing field of Industrial Hygiene. Students learn to assess and measure exposures to environmental and occupational hazards and to develop control strategies to remediate these exposures, with the ultimate aim of ensuring that workplaces in every field, from offices to schools to factories, are safe and healthy environments. It offers courses that develop the scientific framework and technical skills needed to achieve these objectives. Its graduates work as inspectors, health and safety specialists and industrial hygienists for government agencies, institutions, consulting firms and businesses.
Students entering the MS in Environmental and Occupational Health Sciences are encouraged to apply for financial support from one of the following two scholarship programs:
- The New York Community Trust Industrial Hygiene Scholarship
- The National Institute of Occupational Health and Safety (NIOSH) Scholarship
At this time, we are unable to issue I-20 forms for this program, given that many of its required courses are offered online.
