Environment & Health


The graduate degree programs listed below participate in the Environment and Health (EH) Collaborative Specialization. The health implications of human impacts on the environment cover a very broad range of issues including air and water quality, contaminated land, and shifts in the distribution of vector-borne diseases (related to changes in land use, climate, and human migration). The EH Collaborative Specialization provides students in the health sciences with a broad environmental perspective while at the same time exposes environmental studies students to the health implications of environmental quality. This program may also be of interest to students who are concerned with sociological and policy approaches to the field of environment and health.

Upon successful completion of the degree requirements of the participating home department and the collaborative program, students receive the notation “Completed Collaborative Specialization in Environment and Health” on their transcript and parchment.​
