Online MPH in Environmental Health & Toxicology (ENHQ)

This degree was developed for the working professional who may not have time to attend a bricks-and-mortar classroom. Covering the same content as the standard degree, this MPH in Environmental Health /Toxicology will allow students to rigorously study the links between the environment and public health, considering all aspects of this process from initial exposure to toxicant action to science-based policy development. We train students to recognize and assess exposures, determine the toxicity risk to the public, and design and properly communicate strategies to reduce risk and help set appropriate policy.
