Welcome to the Environmental and Occupational Health Sciences (ENHS) Program. In the ENHS program, our students explore the influences of the natural and man-made environment on human health outcomes and the technical interventions needed to protect the environment and the public.  Some examples of the environmental influences on the public’s health include the direct human health impacts of global climate changes, pesticides in foods, quality of drinking and recreational waters, air pollutants, work-related exposures and injuries, and natural and manmade disasters. The field of ENHS encompasses many professional disciplines including indoor and outdoor air quality monitoring, hearing conservation and noise abatement, industrial hygiene, water quality management, occupational health and safety, human health risk assessment, hazardous materials management, toxicology, disaster planning and preparedness, emergency response management, and environmental regulation and justice. The ENHS Program was designed to provide the scientific and public health training required to enter and to succeed in a variety of technical careers in governmental and private sectors committed to protecting the environment and to improving the health of workers and the general public.
