Graduate Minor in Environmental and Occupational Health

About the Graduate Minor

Graduate students in the Environmental and Occupational Health minor gain skills and knowledge to assess and prevent health impacts from air and drinking water pollutants, climate change, the built environment, and workplace hazards. The minor will deepen a student’s learning experience and provide them with a distinctive skill set to help address complex, emerging environmental health issues.

Admission Requirements

Graduate minors are designed to complement students' training by providing basic knowledge in topics outside their primary discipline. All matriculated graduate students in quarter programs, except for students pursuing the MPH in Environmental and Occupational Health, the MS in Environmental and Occupational Health Sciences, or the PhD in Environmental and Occupational Health, are eligible to enroll.

Students must receive approval from their home program and the Dornsife School of Public Health and complete the minor form with all signatures.
