The Master of Public Health (MPH) concentration in Environmental and Occupational Health Sciences looks through the lenses of environmental and worker justice. In doing so, the EOHS MPH trains students how to advocate for and protect home, work, and community environments. Specific training includes exposure and risk assessment, environmental and occupational toxicity and injury, risk management and evaluation, and policy. With additional concentrations in Industrial Hygiene, Occupational Safety and Water Quality and Health, and an Occupational Medicine residency, students build a broad array of skills to address public health challenges and promote health equity.
Research and community work led by students, faculty and alumni solve occupational and environmental health problems, prevent acute traumatic injury in the occupational setting, address the effects of climate change and promote environmental justice in Chicago neighborhoods and communities around the globe.
