The MS degree in environmental, health and safety management curriculum provides a solid foundation in the managerial aspects of developing and implementing environmental, health and safety management systems that can move organizations toward a more sustainable and socially responsible future. Program graduates have a solid technical foundation in air emissions, wastewater, solid and hazardous waste, occupational safety and occupational health. In addition, aspects of sustainability are integrated into most of the core courses and some electives. The program was designed for EHS professionals or those planning a career move into the EHS field. However, those with a BS degree who lack EHS work experience, but have completed the pre-requisite coursework may also be eligible to complete the program.
