1 Office of Programs and Academic Assessment (MC 103) 2630 University Hall 601 South Morgan Street Chicago, Illinois September 26, 2012 TO: FROM: Ilene Harris, Chair Senate Committee on Educational Policy Kim Neumann, Director of Academic Program Development I am submitting for review and action by the Senate Committee on Educational Policy the attached Proposal to Revise the Concentration in Water Quality and Health, Master of Public Health. The revision was approved by the Committee on Educational Programs in the School of Public Health on March 13, October 3,

2 Title: Revision of the Concentration in Water Quality and Health, Master of Public Health Sponsor: Division of Environmental and Occupational Health Sciences School of Public Health Description: Changes are being made to the Water Quality and Health Concentration (approved last year) as a result of ongoing evaluation of the Water Quality and Health concentration ( the concentration ) by EOHS faculty, communications with the instructor of CME 521, and students in the program. The goal of these changes is to better prepare students for careers in water quality and public health, while simultaneously increasing program flexibility. 1) Change CME 521 (Environmental Microbiology, 4 hours) from a requirement to a selective. 2) Add the following courses to the list of selectives: EPID 594 (Outbreak Investigations/Field Epidemiology); EOHS 405 (Environmental Calculations); EOHS 512 (Advanced Water Quality Management Topics); EOHS 542 (Water Chemistry); UPP 461 (Geographic Information Systems for Planning). Add EOHS 436 (GIS for Environmental and Public Health Professionals, 4 hours - newly developed) to the list of choices for the GIS option. 3) Remove EOHS 565 (Datamining Applications in Public Health) from the list of selectives. 4) Remove EOHS 543 (Environmental Organic Chemistry) from the list of recommended electives. Remaining recommended electives will be added to the selective list. Students must take a minimum of 3 courses from the selective list rather than 2. Total minimum credit hours for the program will change from 45 to 43 hours. Justification: 1) Change CME 521 (Environmental Microbiology) from a requirement to a selective. The rationale for this change is that this course presents an engineering approach to environmental microbiology, which may be of interest but is not required in the knowledge base of a public health student. 2) Add EPID 594 (Outbreak Investigations /Field Epidemiology) to the list of selectives. This course includes three modules of water-borne disease outbreaks. Given the importance of investigating environmental disease outbreaks to practitioners in the field of water quality and health, this course should be of value to student in the concentration. Revise the list of selectives regarding GIS courses: EOHS 564 (Geographic Information System Application in Public Health) or UPP 461 (Geographic Information Systems for Planning) or EOHS 436 (GIS for Environmental and Public Health Professionals). EOHS 436 will give students more solid, basic skills in GIS so that they are able to handle more complex analyses that are specific to EOHS. Because EOHS 564 is taught online only, students who prefer the in-class format will now have the option of acquiring skills in mapping by enrolling in the UPP course. October 3,

3 Add EOHS 405 (Environmental Calculations) to the list of selectives. Fundamentals of mass-balance models and the movement of pollutants through environmental media (including water) may be valuable to students in the concentration. Add EOHS 512 (Advanced WQ Management Topics) to the list of selectives (this course was previously a recommended elective). This course may be of value to students who wish to pursue future doctoral training in water quality management. This will not be a requirement because students need flexibility in scheduling their electives, and may not be planning to go on to the PhD. Add EOHS 542 (Water Chemistry) to the list of selectives (this course was previously a recommended elective). This is the next level course for a student who seeks a greater depth of understanding of the natural science involved in water quality. It is a selective (rather than a requirement) since there is a subset of students who will have a greater interest in policy rather than natural science. 3) Remove EOHS 565 (Datamining Applications in Public Health) from the list of selectives. While the data mining methodologies have the potential to be applied to water quality data, the class is taught with an emphasis on health outcomes data and non-water media. 4) Remove EOHS 543 (Environmental Organic Chemistry) from the list of recommended electives. This course is a PhD level course and one of the listed prerequisites will be changed to PhD standing in the future. Catalog Statement: See below Minority Impact Statement: Greater flexibility in which courses may be selected and in learning style (online versus in class) will enhance the diversity of students that can be successful in this program. Budgetary and Staff Implications: The addition, deletion, and revising of courses does not alter the current need for financial support or staff. Library Resource Implications: Space Implications: There are no special library resource implications, since students will utilize the same types of publications/documents and library guaranteed internet access. There are no additional space requirements; our existing classrooms, teaching laboratories, and online teaching platforms are adequate to support these changes. October 3,

Barnds" "Hazel Brown" Linda, I am fine with the idea that making UPP461 a selective for the students in the water quality and health concentration for the Master of Public Health degree in Environmental and Occupational Health Sciences with the understanding that the number of student in the concentration will be relatively small (5 maximum), and while we cannot guarantee that they will be accommodated in UPP461 when the sections are full, we will give those students the same level of priority given to the students in other cross-college initiatives such as NSF-IGERT programs. Is this acceptable?

I'll go back to teaching it with more technical content; the feedback from some of the engineering students is that they preferred a more quantitative approach.

11 -----Original Message----- From: Dorevitch, Samuel Sent: Friday, January 06, :06 PM To: Karl Rockne Cc: Subject: CME 521 Dear Karl, I hope you've had a great winter break and that 2012 is off to a great start. It's been a year since the School of Public Health proposed the MPH concentration in "Water Quality and Health." We've solicited input from faculty, students, and EOHS alumni regarding careers and educational objectives in water quality in health. Based on that feedback, we'll propose several relatively minor changes in the program. Four students from the SPH did enroll in CME 521 last year, though only two of them completed the course. The students did found the course interesting and were glad they enrolled. Students with a background in microbiology thought that the course need not be a requirement for all SPH students in the Water Quality and Health curriculum, particularly those who had taken prior coursework in microbiology. Accordingly, our Division will propose changing CME 521 from a requirement to a "selective." Students with specific interests in environmental engineering and environmental microbiology will be encouraged to take the course. I appreciate the thought and effort you put into revising the course so that students without engineering backgrounds could benefit, and I hope to direct students to the course in the future. I'd be glad to discuss this further with you. Best, Sam October 3,
