Master of Science Degree

***REVISED Monday, November 29, 2016***

The Curriculum for the Master of Science degree in Environmental and Occupational Health has been revised effective Fall 2017. 

The Environmental and Occupational Health Program offers a Master of Science degree in Environmental and Occupational Health Sciences. 

The MS program is built on a foundation of course work provided by the BS - Environmental and Occupational Health Sciences offered by the Department of Environmental and Occupational Health. Thus, MS candidates will have to have completed the same courses required of BS - EOH students before becoming fully classified graduate students.

Applicants must have completed the lower-division science core, in order to be accepted to the MS EOH program:

  • One year of Biology with lab
  • One year of Inorganic Chemistry with lab
  • One semester of Organic Chemistry with lab
  • One year of Physics with lab
  • Either pre-calculus or College Algebra and Trigonometry

The Master of Science degree in Environmental and Occupational Health has a 26-unit core of 500 level or higher courses within the required 35-unit minimum.  Classified graduate students must have the full complement of courses required of undergraduates.  The culminating requirement is completion of a thesis or a comprehensive examination.
