Master of Science in Public Health
The Master of Science in Public Health (MSPH) is housed in the School of Public Health on the East Baltimore campus. Students in this program have the unique opportunity to take classes on both the Homewood or School of Public Health campuses in order to complete their degree requirements.
The Department of Environmental Health and Engineering offers two track options for the MSPH degree:
- The MSPH Track in Occupational and Environmental Hygiene is designed to prepare students to become leading environmental health professionals capable of addressing problems in environmental and occupational settings. This track is part of the Department’s Education and Research Center for Occupational Safety and Health (ERC) which is sponsored by the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH). There is a part-time option. Courses are built around media-rich instruction to provide learning experiences that are equivalent to those offered with the face-to-face courses.
- The MSPH Track in Toxicity Testing and Human Health Risk Assessment of Environmental Agents is intended for individuals who wish to pursue a career or enhance their current activities in risk assessment with emphasis on the combined use of traditional in vivo and emerging in vitro and in silico models. The program addresses the increasing incorporation of new toxicity testing modalities and their resulting data into the risk assessment paradigm. Graduates of the track will be prepared to play an essential scientific role in the evaluation of toxicity testing data and their utilization in the regulatory process at federal agencies and in the private and industrial sectors. This track is also available in an online/part-time format.
