1 B.S. in Environmental Health Science Description The Environmental Health Science major is a rigorous, science based, applied curriculum that prepares students for careers in environmental fields. The degree can also be used as a step to an advanced degree in many fields including environmental health, industrial hygiene, toxicology, public health, epidemiology, ecology and environmental engineering, and will satisfy entrance requirements for professional degree programs such as medicine, veterinary medicine, dentistry, optometry and pharmacy. Students who successfully complete the program of study receive the Bachelor of Science in Environmental Health (B.S.E.H.) degree. The degree program is nationally accredited and is the only undergraduate Environmental Health Science degree in Georgia. Environmental health scientists are in demand by private industries, consulting firms, governmental agencies, and institutions. A wide range of opportunities for employment exist in corporate environmental and occupational health departments, public health agencies, solid and hazardous waste management, general sanitation engineering, and pollution control. Environmental health scientists are employed in programs of water and air pollution control, industrial hygiene, occupational health and safety, and a variety of other activities by a significant number of agencies and commercial concerns. Competencies Upon completion of the BSEH degree students will: 1. Exhibit a strong foundation in the natural and physical sciences, at a minimum to include biology, organic chemistry, physics, microbiology and human physiology. 2. Use strong computer, communication and presentation skills, so to effectively analyze and communicate environmental and public health data to the public and their peers through written and oral communication methods. 3. Demonstrate skill in the core environmental health areas of toxicology, epidemiology and biostatistics, so that they are able to collect, analyze and interpret environmental and occupational data. 4. Employ in-depth knowledge in a minimum of four prescribed technical areas in environmental health: air quality, water quality, environmental epidemiology, global environmental health, environmental microbiology, food protection, hazardous waste management, industrial hygiene, soils and water quality. 5. Demonstrate basic understanding of environmental economics and health management, environmental law and public policy development, risk assessment and risk communication. 6. Apply practical experience and problem-solving skills gained through participation in an internship which provided hands-on experience with instrumentation and field equipment, collect environmental health data, and participate actively in data reduction and interpretation.

2 Prerequisites/ Requirements for Admission For first-year applicants, the state-mandated College Prep Curriculum (CPC) requires that incoming students have a minimum of 16 courses in specific academic areas: 4 English courses 4 mathematics courses 4 science courses* 3 social science courses 2 language courses in the same language Academic electives: UGA suggests that students pursue the most rigorous curriculum appropriate to their ability levels, as grades in academic courses and curriculum difficulty are the two most important factors in first-year admission decisions.

Assessment of competency The mastery of theories, concepts, skills and knowledge in topics related to aging in public health are examined through course examinations, group projects, class presentation, and class discussions. Many courses include a service-learning component where students work together in groups with an external public health organization on a project that will benefit the organization. The product of that project is turned over to the organization for their use. Many students will continue to work with that organization after the completion of the project. The

21 internship, which is supervised by the faculty member, is designed to provide an experience that integrates knowledge and skills into practice. Students are advised by faculty and meet with them on a regular basis to discuss class progress and issues, advancement through the program of study, and issues related to internships and graduation. The faculty advisor also directs the student s capstone experience along with a second faculty member. Students frequently meet with other faculty as well to discuss issues relevant to their areas of interest and the field in general. Exit and alumni surveys are used to examine students (and graduates) perceptions of their training did they develop the skills and knowledge necessary to perform in the field upon graduation. Feedback is discussed in faculty meetings and incorporated into program as needed.
