Environmental, Safety, and Occupational Health Management BS

The environmental, safety, and occupational health management major consists of required environmental, safety, and occupational health management courses, required math and science courses, required All Hazards Training Center (AHTC) courses, and elective courses from an approved list. Students may choose to take additional AHTC courses; however, only 1.5 hours of AHTC elective courses can be counted toward graduation. Students must participate in at least one internship, cooperative position, or cumulative experience for academic credit which allows students to gain practical on-the-job experience.

Training courses are taught at the All Hazards Training Center (AHTC) and are usually offered on weekends during the academic semester.
