Environmental Health Sciences pursue prevention and protection in a world where more than 10,000 people die from environmental and occupational exposures each day.  Our faculty and students do cutting-edge research to understand how the environment impacts human health and how to educate the public about best practices and policy improvements at local and global levels.

At Michigan Public Health, you'll learn to identify, address and manage the impacts of chemical, biological, physical , and psychosocial stressors on human health and the environment so you can pursue sustainable changes to practice and policy.
