EnvH 510 provides a graduate level overview of environmental and occupational health, with a major but not exclusive focus on developing countries. The course examines a broad spectrum of environmental hazards and influential factors, their interactions with human health and well-being, and their relevance to the effective assurance and promotion of public health. Workplace, community, home, regional and global problems are considered, with frequent use of case examples. The course stresses examining environmental health concerns in the broader context of public health, and the social, economic and other factors that mitigate the effects of environmental hazards or otherwise influence population health.
This course should allow students to develop fundamental competence in environmental and occupational health, suitable for careers anywhere in the world, including the United States.
