Content

The Country is presently experiencing a rapid transition to industrialization and urbanization which brings about several environmental resource and health problems. Among these are deaths attributed to inadequate water supply and poor sanitation and hygiene practices; chronic diseases brought about by the contamination of air, water and food; and, general degradation of the environment by indiscriminate disposal of wastes, erosion of soil, deforestation, siltation of bodies of water and formation of urban slums. Poor appreciation of the interaction among development, environment and health must be addressed by training environmental professionals who will be able to influence environmental health policies of the country through education, research, community service, and advocacy.

The MSPH (Environmental Health) program is designed to provide this area of specialization in Public Health. Graduates of the program are expected to make substantive contribution to new knowledge that is relevant to the environmental needs of developing countries. Specifically, at the end of the program, the MSPH (EH) graduates should be able to:

  • recognize the different environmental hazards, their environmental and health effects;
  • apply principles and methods of controlling environmental hazards and health effects;
  • plan and conduct environmental epidemiologic research;
  • evaluate the environmental and health impact of development projects; and
