About This Program
The ScM is intended for students with a serious interest in pursuing research or field work in environmental health. Often these students have previously worked hands-on in laboratory, field, or population-based investigations and would like to build upon that experience.
Following one year of course work, students conduct original research under the direction of a faculty mentor which results in a formal thesis.
Graduates of the program are well-prepared to pursue doctoral degree programs and are also competitive for positions in the private sector, federal agencies, and non-governmental organizations.
