The two-year ScM degree provides an opportunity to do a year-long research project with a faculty member. The first year of the program follows the full-time MHS guidance and focuses on coursework designed to provide a strong foundation in environmental health. The second year involves full-time research whether in a lab, clinic, the field, or at a desk. The following faculty may be willing to advise ScM students. If you identify a faculty member that you want to work with who is not on this list, we encourage you to ask them about their availability.
