Industrial Hygiene offered by Tulane University is the profession that anticipates, recognizes, evaluates, and controls workplace conditions to prevent injury or illness in workers.


Industrial hygienists use environmental and workplace monitoring and analytical methods to identify exposures and estimate risk and use engineering, work practices, and protective equipment to control potential health hazards. The MSPH in Industrial Hygiene at Tulane University provides the knowledge and skills to identify workplace hazards, comply with government regulations, and manage occupational exposures and risk.The program is ABET-accredited and graduates receive one year of credit towards the experience requirement to sit for the exam to become a board-certified industrial hygienist (CIH, American Board of Industrial Hygiene). This program is offered on-campus and by distance learning.

The Tulane MSPH program in Industrial Hygiene is supported by a Training and Education grant awarded by the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH). Students in the MSPH–IH program are eligible to apply for a NIOSH traineeship which may provide partial tuition support and stipend.  For further details on the NIOSH training program, contact Program Director Dr. Roy Rando.
