Environmental and Occupational Health, PhD


Return to Academic Programs Return to: Academic Programs

The PhD in Environmental and Occupational Health provides a broad theoretical and practical education for individuals who desire positions in academic, industrial, or government laboratories in the multifaceted discipline of environmental health sciences. The program combines training in classical toxicological and environmental biophysics with the new and continually developing fields of cellular and molecular pathobiology of environmental disease. Training is geared toward an understanding of how relevant environmental exposures, laboratory based model systems, and gene-environment responses can be interpreted and applied to the study of disease etiology in exposed and potentially exposed human populations.

During the first two years of study, students will take the majority of their coursework and have an opportunity to rotate in three different research laboratories. Students spend the remainder of the graduate program completing the research dissertation project and taking elective courses.
