The Environmental Health Sciences MPH program offered at University of South Carolina is a professional degree oriented toward development of a broad background in public health and professional practice within the environmental health sciences.


Environmental health scientists strive to understand how environmental exposures affect human health and disease, and how human activities affect the environment. We study the interaction of environmental and human health, specifically within areas of microbiology, toxicology and exposure science.

Strategic alliances and collaborations within and outside of the Arnold School of Public Health allow our environmental health sciences graduate students and faculty to conduct basic and applied research to improve public health at both the local and global level.
