Environmental Health Sciences - Minor
131 Moulton Hal
Admission to the Environmental Health Sciences minor has been suspended temporarily as of fall 2018.
The Environmental Health Sciences minor is intended for students who have a strong interest or curricular focus in a natural science major. The minor provides students with foundational concepts in environmental health as it relates to the broad field of public health and allows students to choose elective courses that meet their interests and help to augment their degree program. This includes students in a variety of majors, including, but not limited, to biology, chemistry, geology, geography, physics, botany and zoology.
Students who complete the required coursework and have 30 credit hours of coursework in biology, chemistry, physics, geology, math or statistics can pursue a Sanitarian in Training (SIT) career path in State of Ohio agencies to become a Registered Sanitarian (RS) and are well equipped to enter the workforce in a variety of career paths.
