Master of Science in Occupational Health-Industrial Hygiene

Curriculum Design

The 40-hour curriculum consists of advanced courses and research designed to prepare and qualify students for entry- and upper-level positions as Industrial Hygiene Specialists at governmental agencies, manufacturing and service industries, labor unions, consulting firms, insurance agencies, health care organizations, and academic institutions.

The curriculum will benefit those intending to eventually take applicable certification examinations, such as the American Board of Industrial Hygiene Certified Industrial Hygienist (CIH) and/or Board of Certified Safety Professionals CSP examinations. 

The curriculum provides a solid foundation of information for students with limited or no background in Industrial Hygiene, while simultaneously offering students with professional experience the opportunity to expand their scope of knowledge and skills.

The program offers classes during evenings and weekends to facilitate graduate study for those engaged in full-time daily employment. 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 schedule also permits students without applicable practical experience to complete an internship.
