Important Catalog Information
Due to the planned consolidation during the summer of 2020, of the University of South Florida, the University of South Florida St. Petersburg, and the University of South Florida Sarasota-Manatee, into a single university with a fully aligned and integrated curriculum and a single set of academic policies and procedures, any undergraduate or graduate student who matriculates at one of the three USF institutions on or after May 18, 2020, will adhere to the curricula, policies, and procedures described in the 2020-21 USF undergraduate or graduate catalog, respectively.
Concentration: Environmental Health (Code: EVH)
Starting in Fall 2018, this concentration has been consolidated into the Environmental and Occupational Health concentration.
Students in the Environmental Health concentration gain a broad perspective in the public health sciences and social sciences, and a fundamental education in the technical sciences with an emphasis on the protection and improvement of our environmental and public health. Students enrolled in the MPH concentration are likely to be recent graduates of a biological science, environmental science or medicine undergraduate program; employees of county or state agencies; in a military education program; or involved in environmental health & safety management with a company. The motivation for an MPH student to complete an advanced degree is to become an environmental scientist or manager; and increased competence as an environmental scientist or manager; or as pre-medical training or an opportunity to take and pass the US medical boards. Many MPH students are now or will become community leaders, for example, as U.S. Armed Services or Public Health Service Officers; as State Health Officers; or as Agency or Laboratory Directors.
