A Doctor of Philosophy, or PhD, is an advanced program degree that focuses on research in a particular area in the fields of science, humanities, and business. Most programs take around four years to finish, and many require a final dissertation or thesis upon graduation.

What is a PhD in Environmental Health? Students typically gain research experience and specialized training in the areas of toxicology, environmental epidemiology, risk assessment, modern food systems, global climate change, and exposure assessment. Along with taking graduate-level courses, students may be required to complete research rotations and complete a final thesis. Examples of classes include statistical computing; environmental health science, law, and policy; physiologic principles for public health; and epidemiology.  

The rigorous curriculum of this degree often gives students the skills, such as critical thinking and problem solving, that may help them find a career. Graduates who have an advanced degree may also find that their salaries are higher than those who only have undergraduate designations.

Don’t let the cost of attending university deter you from furthering your education.
