This course is a comprehensive introduction to environmental health concepts, including regulatory controls, and to pollutants’ sources, fates, and impacts in environmental media (air, water, food, and soil) and in occupational settings.

There are 5 modules to complete, which provide 1. our introduction to the study of environmental health; 2. an overview of major environmental and occupational agents; 3. an overview of environmental hazards, exposure assessment, toxicology, and risk management and communication; 4. skills to develop an environmental and occupational risk assessment; 5. skills to advocate for environmental health advocacy; 6. an optional module about Disaster Planning and Management for students interested in taking the ABPM certification exam, and for other motivated learners. The completion time for this course is estimated at 140 hours, 50 hours of didactics through narratives and curated resources, and 90 hours of work participating in activities and quizzes to assist the student in synthesis of the materials. This course is equivalent to 3 credit hours. You'll have the opportunity to connect with a mentor with professional health care training who has both a bachelor’s/college degree, and a Master of Public Health (MPH) or equivalent, to assist you as you engage in activities that are designed to fulfill the requirements of master's-level competencies. We hope this is a wonderful learning experience for you, and the feedback you provide after completing the course will help us improve the course for future students.
