The undergraduate level certificate program in Environmental Epidemiology is designed to give you a strong understanding of the role of science and the environment in the field of public health. Our health and the environment are intertwined, and epidemiology makes a special contribution to environmental health through its focus on entire populations and by its use of descriptive and analytical methodologies. Epidemiologists study the causes of diseases and health-related states in specific populations, from neighborhoods to nations. The Environmental Epidemiology certificate provides a foundation to prepare aspiring leaders to solve complex and significant problems of health and environment.
