After years of inter-institutional planning, the Ohio Board of Regents granted approval on March 8, 1985 to the School of Allied Health to offer the Master of Science in Industrial Hygiene (MSIH) degree within the School of Health Sciences and the School of Graduate Studies.

The first class of MSIH students was admitted in the Fall Quarter of 1985. During May,1991, a resolution was approved by the Ohio Board of Regents for change of the degree nomenclature to Master of Science in Occupational Health (MSOH).  The Industrial Hygiene program of the MSOH degree is accredited by the Applied Science Accreditation Commission (ASAC) of ABET. 

In July, 2005, the institution was renamed the Medical University of Ohio, and in July, 2006, the Medical University of Ohio merged with the University of Toledo. The campus formerly known as the Medical University of Ohio became the Health Science Campus of the University of Toledo. 

At the time of this merger, the Department of Public Health and Preventive Medicine and its programs were moved to the College of Medicine and Life Sciences. In July 2016, MSOH-IH program became part of the School of Population Health in the College of Health and Human Services.
