The objective in offering this minor is to enable students to find a wider selection of employment opportunities. For example, the students may wish to major in biological sciences, chemistry, criminal justice, physics, geography/geology, health science, technology, and pre-med or pre-engineering. A minor in environmental health will broaden their knowledge and augment their chances of employment in their chosen field. If employment is not available in their chosen field, they may be employed in environmental health/public health protection types of work.
A student with a major in the sciences and a minor in environmental health has an enhanced opportunity of finding employment in some industrial settings. As an example, the chemical industry needs environmental control personnel who are trained in chemistry.
Preprofessional majors, who choose not to or are unable to continue in professional school, will be much better prepared to seek employment within a federal, state, or local public health agency.
In addition to meeting the requirements for admission to the university, applicants must apply to the Department of Environmental Health. Students must have an overall GPA of 2.30.
