MPH in Environmental Health

Program Overview

The University of Florida Master of Public Health in Environmental Health is a  public health degree program focused on improving health by preventing, identifying, tracking, and mitigating environmental risk factors. Our curriculum addresses a diverse range of environmental issues that concern individuals and communities. Courses and other educational experiences are carefully structured to enable students to develop competence in very specific environmental health skills.

The program offers particular depth in the effects of hazardous materials on human health and the environment through courses in toxicology and risk assessment. Required courses include general toxicology, toxic substances, human health risk assessment, risk communication, and exposure assessment. Included in the concentration core are courses on air pollution, water pollution and wastewater management, and food sanitation and safety where public health activities are guided by federal and state laws and regulations. Through additional elective courses, which draw on the extensive expertise of University of Florida faculty and the unique ecology of our state, students may focus on community environmental health, infectious diseases, food safety, toxicology, and risk assessment
