Environmental and Occupational Health

Milken Institute School of Public Health Department of Environmental and Occupational Health (EOH) works to further our understanding of how natural and human-made environments impact human health. We offer public health programs that challenge students to explore both the underlying science and policy remedies for topics including sustainable cities and food systems, climate change mitigation, workplace safety and risk management. With our Washington, DC location and active alumni network, students gain practical work experience and make important connections in a variety of industries, nonprofit organizations and government agencies
