Credits: 4
The purpose of this course is to introduce the field of environmental health to public health majors and those interested in environmental health issues. It places environmental health in the broader context of public health, teaching students how to evaluate environmental health problems in relation to other social, economic, and health disparity issues. The course first introduces fundamental concepts of environmental health, and the tools and methods used to study environmental exposures and diseases. By course completion, students will be familiar with the spectrum of environmental health hazards, the pathways of exposure, various media in which they are found, and disease outcomes associated with exposures. Students will also be familiar with approaches to environmental health surveillance and the federal and state agencies responsible for protecting environmental health.
