EPH encompasses assessing and controlling environmental factors that target disease prevention and positively impact population and community health.

Readiness for practice will be developed in a multidisciplinary curriculum focused on experiential learning activities that will develop knowledge of EPH theory and its application in practice.
The program will be innovative in its use of technology to investigate issues, organize and manage inquiry, aid collaboration, and communicate information.
Students will be challenged to consider multiple perspectives in understanding EPH practice and policy, determining professional practices that positively impact population and community health and developing leadership perspectives and confidence to contribute to the EPH professions.
