The ENST concentration in Environmental Health gives students the concepts and skills to work in this broad and increasingly important field with wide ranging applications in environmental science and public health. The field encompasses environmental factors and ecosystem functions that affect human health and the effects of human activities on the ecosystem products and services we depend on. Example topics within the field include emerging environmental threats, ecological risk analysis and assessment, ecosystem services, climate change, environmental toxicology, environmental impact assessment, chemical fate and transport, human health risk assessment, environmental microbiology, biodiversity, and invasion ecology.
