The Department of Environmental and Global Health focuses upon environmental factors that impact human health. Department faculty, scientists, and students employ numerous disciplines in studying these environmental factors: virology, bacteriology, parasitology, entomology, toxicology, epidemiology, water sciences, veterinary health, environmental engineering, aerosol biology, wildlife health, etc. Research work often involves international travel and collaboration. A central theme for the department is the interdisciplinary thinking called One Health which reflects the collaborations necessary to tackle public health’s most difficult problems. Faculty, students and staff often perform research in the laboratories in the Emerging Pathogens Institute, the Center for Environmental and Human Toxicology, or the Aquatic Pathobiology Laboratory.
The Department of Environmental and Global Health offers graduate work leading to the degrees of Doctor of Philosophy, Master of Health Science (approval anticipated June 2012) , and Master of Public Health.
