Description:
The M.P.H. degree curriculum in environmental and occupational health is designed for individuals with professional practitioner career objectives in the area of environmental and occupational health. It helps prepare them to meet the growing employment market for environmental health specialists, industrial hygienists, geographic information system specialists, and other professions that examine human-environment interactions. Students who complete this curriculum will acquire the professional and scientific skills to perform as environmental quality control professionals in local, state, or federal government health departments/ agencies; and in private business/industry. The program has been approved by the State of California Environmental Health Specialist Registration Committee, 601 North 7th Street, MS 396, P.O. Box 942732, Sacramento, CA 94234–7320. Satisfactory completion of this curriculum meets, in part, the eligibility requirements to sit for the registered environmental health specialist (REHS) examination administered by the California Department of Public Health. Satisfactory performance on the examination qualifies individuals for practice as registered environmental health specialists in California and, by reciprocity, in the forty-nine remaining states. Admission into the M.P.H degree curriculum is considered for individuals who can provide verification of at least two years of applicable environmental health experience (with preference given to applicants who are registered environmental health specialists); or for students without previous professional experience but with a solid science background. Prerequisites: Biological science with laboratory (one year), General chemistry with laboratory (one year), General physics with laboratory (one year), Calculus or college algebra (one course), Organic chemistry with laboratory (minimum of two-quarter sequence) Alumni Profiles: http://www.llu.edu/public-health/profiles/index.page)
