Stepping Stone to the MSPH in OEH

The Certificate in Environmental and Occupational Health can be completed entirely online and can serve as a potential lead-in to the MSPH in OEH part-time degree.

Completion of the certificate coursework that is part of the MSPH in OEH core curriculum with a “B” or better in all courses will allow prospective degree candidates to request a waiver of the GRE requirement for MSPH part-time admission. Students who complete the certificate and are accepted into the MSPH in OEH part-time program can apply the completed courses towards the degree program coursework.

Contact Carla Reinhard for more information about using the certificate as a stepping stone. 

All online students must establish an eLearning account and complete the free Introduction to Online Learning course prior to the start of the term in which the first internet course is taken.
