EOHS Courses & Programs
Graduates of the Environmental and Occupational Health Science MPH program will have acquired the knowledge and skills needed to pursue careers in governmental agencies, departments of health, non-profit and community organizations, unions, and private sector companies dedicated to supporting public health through environmental and occupational consultation, product design, and services. EOHS MPH students will have the opportunity to engage in research and publish articles with EOHS faculty. See a recent publication in the American Journal of Industrial Medicine by Dr. Landsbergis and EOHS students: Occupational risk factors for musculoskeletal disorders among railroad maintenance-of-way workers.
Doctoral students in the Environmental and Occupational Health Science DrPH program are matched with faculty who will train them to become leaders in the field of Environmental and Occupational Health Sciences. Doctoral coursework provides an emphasis on research methodology and its practical application to urban and immigrant populations in NYC and beyond, as well as on policy implications for environmental and occupational health. For example, students have conducted independent studies on the cholera epidemic in Haiti; nosocomial exposures in aging urban adults; ambulance infectious exposures; mHealth and environmental exposures in maternal immigrant populations; vaccinations; quality of work life; and working conditions and the opioid epidemic.
Students in the Advanced Certificate Program in Climate Change and Planetary Health will have received cutting-edge training needed to characterize and assess impacts related to climate change and the anthropogenic effects on health and wellbeing through constructive strategizing for policy and positive change. All components of the program are online in distance learning format. Students will have the opportunity to participate in asynchronous discussions with faculty and peers. Students who complete the program will emerge with the ability to provide guidance and potential for leadership within academia, government institutions, the non-governmental sector (community-based organizations), or in private industry to address the health implications of the activities and behavior of global populations.
