Public Health - 5-year Bachelor of Science and Master of Public Health in Occupational Safety and Health
The 3+2 Bachelor of Science in Public Health and Masters in Public Health in Occupational Safety and Health is more than a means to produce next-level OSH experts. It will deliver a graduate who can not only immediately impact workplace health and safety, but also deliver someone with a well-rounded understanding of the specific roles that Occupational Safety and Health play in medicine, nursing, population health and other health professions.
The undergraduate component of the 3+2 program is based on a philosophy of workplace health promotion and proactive prevention of illness to improve the quality of life of individuals, employees, families and communities. The graduate MPH component is a non-thesis degree program with culminating experiences as part of the degree requirements. Students will participate in a practicum demonstrating overall public health problem solving skills and complete a rigorous capstone class.
