Health and Safety Track in Environmental Sciences

Environmental Health and Safety Track
The environmental health and safety track in the environmental sciences major is an interdisciplinary program among the Departments of Environmental Sciences, Biology, Chemistry, and the Rutgers School of Public Health. The goal of this program is to give students a well-rounded background in the factors and practices that promote environmental health and safety. The program prepares students to pursue careers in environmental health and safety, public health, and medicine among others. Students may elect to complete their B.S. degree only, or can work towards both their B.S. and Master of Public Health (M.P.H.) degree. In the M.P.H. "4+1" program, students earn their bachelor of science degree in 4 years and also complete part of their M.P.H. degree in the four years as an undergraduate. Completion of the Master of Public Health degree is designed to require one additional year while enrolled in the Rutgers School of Public Health.

The 4+1 M.P.H. program requires students to earn a minimum GPA of 3.2 in their first 60 credits and to be accepted into the graduate program at the Rutgers School of Public Health in their junior or senior year.

The environmental health and safety track in the environmental sciences major is exempt from the minor requirement. It requires at least 66 credits in the following courses:
