educational outcomes

The environmental, safety and occupational health management program is designed and taught around the following five program outcomes that were developed in an effort to ensure the highest quality graduates from the program.  These five outcomes are supported by the learning outcomes from all the courses that students take in the program.

4.  Communication - Communicate technical environmental, safety, occupational and public health risk information to business, regulatory, media and community audiences, demonstrating knowledge of contemporary issues.
