PROGRAM EDUCATIONAL OBJECTIVES, STUDENT OUTCOMES, AND PROGRAM DELIVERY
Program Educational Objectives
The primary goal of the MSOH degree-Industrial Hygiene program is to provide education and training to students and members of the public for the purpose of increasing their knowledge, comprehension, skills, and attitudes essential to the advancement of occupational health science and practice.
The MSOH degree-Industrial Hygiene program has three program educational objectives.
i. All graduates are expected to be qualified to practice comprehensive industrial hygiene
ii. Most graduates are expected to practice in the filed of industrial hygiene or related areas of environmental occupational health and safety and to meet the relevant and appropriate needs of their employers.
iii. Most graduates who pursue applicable certification (i.e., CIH, CSP, CHMM) in occupational health and safety will pass.
Upon completion of the program, graduates should be able to:
i. Identify agents, factors, and stressors generated by and/or associated with defined sources, unit operations and/or processes.
ii. Describe qualitative and quantitative aspects of generation of agents, factors and stressors.
iii. Understand physiological and/or toxicological interactions of physical, chemical, biological, and ergonomic agents, factors and/or stressors with the human body.
iv. Assess qualitative and quantitative aspects of exposure assessment, dose-response, and risk characterization based on applicable pathways and modes of entry.
v. Calculate, interpret, and apply statistical and epidemiological data.
vi. Recommend and evaluate engineering, administrative, and personal protective equipment controls and/or other interventions to reduce or eliminate hazards.
vii. Demonstrate the importance of appropriate ethical performance and practice.
viii. Demonstrate an understanding of applicable business and managerial practices.
ix. Interpret and apply applicable occupational and environmental regulations.
x. Participate in the development and implementation of applicable industrial hygiene-related programs.
xi. Generate, review, and interpret data, whether from original research or other published sources.
xii. Prepare scientific and technical summaries and reports.
xiii. Understand fundamental aspects of safety and environmental health.
xiv. Understand the necessity of teamwork among management, industrial hygienists, safety specialists, environmental specialists, engineers and clinicians (i.e., occupational health physicians and nurses).
xv. Attain recognized professional certification
The Program schedule is designed for both full- and part-time students. Realizing that many students interested in enrolling in the Program are professionals with many outside demands and responsibilities, the courses are offered during evenings and weekends. The evening courses typically meet every other week during the 15 week semester. Weekend courses meet on alternating weeks for eight Saturdays per course. The Program schedules are accommodating without sacrifice of academic quality and integrity.
The MSOH degree is conferred by the College of Graduate Studies at the University of Toledo, which is accredited by the North Central Association of Colleges. The Industrial Hygiene program is accredited by the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology - Applied Science Accreditation Commission (ABET ASAC), ABET, Inc., Baltimore, MD, 21202.
