The MS program in Environmental Health Sciences prepares you for a career as an environmental health research scientist, professional or specialist, or for continuing graduate study as a doctoral student in relevant scientific fields. You’ll take on multidisciplinary coursework and research training that culminates in a research thesis in one or more disciplines, including environmental epidemiology, toxicology, exposure science, environmental engineering, environmental chemistry, geography and more.
In the Environmental Health Sciences program, you'll work side-by-side with faculty who conduct research on topics like the health risks of exposures, environmental epidemiology and environmental epigenetics. Since UB is a "research 1" institution, you'll gain meaningful hands-on experience in designing and conducting studies, and analyzing research data.
Your core coursework focuses on the principles and methods of environmental health, toxicology, exposure science, epidemiology and professional development. You’ll also take at least one additional elective course in subject areas, including environmental health, environmental epidemiology, toxicology, exposure science, environmental engineering, environmental chemistry and geography.
Gain the education, research and training you need without bankrupting your future. In addition to UB’s low tuition, benefit from a multitude of resources to help offset your costs.
