Careers

Students graduating from the Earth and Environmental Sciences - Environmental Health Sciences course offered by Wright State University get jobs in four primary areas: public health, industrial hygiene, environmental protection, and natural resource management. Each of these fields is briefly described below.

Public Health

The field of public health encompasses those responsibilities of scientists who help ensure a healthful environment for general public under the public health statutes. Specifically, the duties of public health officials include community health and epidemiology, restaurant and swimming pool inspections, hazard protection (e.g. asbestos), vector control, proper operation and maintenance of public and private drinking water supplies, and sewage treatment plants. These individuals are usually employed by a state, county, or local health department.

Industrial Hygiene

The field of industrial hygiene encompasses those responsibilities of scientists working in industrial settings who help ensure a healthful environment for employees. Specifically, the duties include measuring employee exposure to hazards, evaluating those exposures, and where appropriate, recommending procedures to reduce risks resulting from exposures. Reducing risk may involve communicating information about risks to employees. Employment opportunities usually are in the environmental consulting firms, industry, or in government.

Environmental Protection

The field of environmental protection covers those responsibilities of scientists who help ensure a healthful environmental for the general public under the environmental statutes. Specifically, the duties of environmental protection officials include monitoring air, soil, and water, plants and animals, assessing impacts that chemicals have on individuals, populations, or ecosystems, and investigating the sources of those chemicals. This field also can involve managing hazardous wastes. These individuals are employed by consulting firms, large industries, and government.
