Master of Public Health in the Field of Global Environmental Health
Program Director G. Gray
Practicum Director S. McCormick
The mission of the master of public health (MPH) in the field of global environmental health degree program—a joint program between the Departments of Global Health and Environmental and Occupational Health—is to prepare students to work in resource-poor settings and apply analytic skills to prevent or lessen problems assoicated with environmental hazards for human health. The program has a particular focus on traditional environmental health hazards—a lack of access to clean water, inadequate sanitation, poor hygiene, household air pollution, solid waste disposal, and vector-borne diseases such as malaria.
