Minor in Environmental and Occupational Health

Our minor is designed for students in other majors who wish to add skills and knowledge provided by the EOH degree. The addition of this minor to another BS or BA from CSUN will qualify the student for many (but not all) of the employment opportunities available for our graduates.  Please feel free to contact the Department of EOH for more information. 

The requirements for the minor include 32 units of science prerequisites. Many students already have these courses included in their current BA or BS major requirements. 

  • BIO 101/L
  • BIO 281/282
  • CHEM 103/104
  • CHEM 235
  • PHYS 100A/L
  • PHYS 100B/L
  • EOH 455/L 

Some substitutions for science courses are allowed. For example, Biology 106 and 107 with lab may be substituted for Biology 101 and 281/282.  Please contact an EOH advisor with questions regarding course substitutions.
