Environmental health scientists are in demand by private industries, consulting firms, governmental agencies, and institutions. We offer a bachelor degree in Environmental Health Science at the University of Georgia. 


A wide range of opportunities for employment exist in corporate environmental and occupational health departments, public health agencies, solid and hazardous waste management, general sanitation engineering, and pollution control. 

Environmental health scientists are employed in programs of water and air pollution control, industrial hygiene, occupational health and safety, and a variety of other activities by a significant number of agencies and commercial concerns.

The need for environmental health scientists in Georgia is increasing and employment opportunities for academically qualified personnel are increasing proportionately. The demand for trained environmental health scientists, however, is not restricted to the state of Georgia. Due to the limited availability of college training programs for this field, numerous other states rely upon the resources of the University of Georgia for graduates in this subject matter area. Students successfully completing the program of study receive the Bachelor of Science in Environmental Health (B.S.E.H.) degree. Students may pursue their interests in the areas of environmental protection, industrial hygiene, or public health. 

The degree program in Environmental Health Science at the University of Georgia is nationally accredited and is the only undergraduate environmental health program in Georgia. A dual degree program is offered with Biological and Agricultural Engineering which allows a student to earn both the B.S.E.H. degree and the Bachelor of Science in Biological Engineering (B.S.B.E.) simultaneously in a five-year course of study. In addition, the basic science training for EHS majors will satisfy entrance requirements for professional degree programs such as medicine (MD, OD), veterinary medicine (DVM), dentistry (DDS, DMD), optometry (DO), and Pharmacy (PharmD).
