  • Unknown


The Maryland Institute for Applied Environmental Health offers a Master of Public Health (MPH) degree with a concentration in Environmental Health Sciences. Environmental Health Science is a discipline that investigates biological, chemical, and physical factors that affect the health of human beings and their communities. Focusing on interrelationships between people and their environments, the discipline seeks to translate environmental health research into effective public health practice; promote human health and well-being; and foster safe and healthy environments. Environmental public health scientists address issues such as the control of epidemic diseases, food and water safety, treatment and disposal of liquid and airborne wastes, elimination of workplace stressors, and the role of environment in chronic illnesses. Environmental health sciences professionals also tackle the effects of long-range problems, including the effects of toxic chemicals and radioactive waste, acidic deposition, depletion of the ozone layer, and global warming on human health.
