Bachelor of Science in Environmental Health


The ENHL offers a three-year program in environmental health and awards a Bachelor of Science. The curriculum provides a broad education in basic sciences and a fundamental knowledge of environmental health. Emphasis is placed upon the evaluation and control of major environmental health problems in developing countries in such fields as water supply, waste disposal, food hygiene, occupational health, air and marine pollution, and control of disease vectors.
