The School of Population Health offers the following academic degree programs:

  • Master of Public Health
  • Master of Science in Occupational Health--Industrial Hygiene
    • The MSOH-IH degree consists of courses and research designed to prepare and qualify students for entry and upper-level positions as Industrial Hygienists at governmental agencies, manufacturing and service industries, consulting firms, insurance agencies, healthcare organizations, union organizations and academic institutions. In addition the curriculum will benefit those intending to eventually take applicable certification exams such as the American Board of Industrial Hygiene CIH and/or Board Certified Safety Professionals CSP exam. The MSOH-IH program is accredited by ABET.

  • Doctor of Philosophy in Health Education
    • The mission of the Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) in Health Education program is to prepare doctoral degree graduates in advanced study and research in health education. The program prepares advanced students to contribute to the field of health education through teaching, research, and service. Although health and research courses are required, the program is individualized through selection of elective courses and a cognate to develop each student for leadership roles in academia, private health sector, or government agencies.
  • Graduate Certificates
    • Seven Graduate Certificates are offered by the School of Population Health. The graduate certificates were created to offer students an opportunity to learn about various areas of public health without the commitment to a degree program. Graduate certificates require 12-15 credit hours, depending on the certificate. A summary of all graduate certificates can be found here.

The division faculty offer a variety of courses under the course acronyms of HEAL, representing all health education undergraduate and graduate courses, and PUBH, representing all Master in Public Health and Master of Science in Occupational Health courses.
