​Environmental Master's Degree Accreditation​

​​​University of Findlay's Environmental, Safety and Health Management Master's Degree is one of only nine schools to be accredited by the National Environmental ​​Health, Science and Protection Accreditation Council (EHAC). 


​EHAC accreditation is well respected nation and worldwide for two major reasons:

  • Scientific rigor of requirements
  • Practice-based internship requirement for all graduates
EHAC requires a firm educational foundation in the natural sciences of biology, chemistry, physics and geology. This combined with a requirement for the completion of a practical, hands-on internship results in graduates that are well prepared to immediately enter the environmental health workforce or continue their academic journeys.*

Benefits of Attending an Accredited Graduate Program:

  • You will meet the requirement to enter the US Public Health Service (USPHS) and US Army and Navy Environmental Science and Engineering careers.
