​​​​Degree Accreditation​

Accreditation is important for a professional program because it is a clear measurement that the academic programs are, in fact, applicable to your chosen profession. 

The Environment, Health, Safety, and Sustainability (EHS&S)​ degree is accredited by the National Environmental Health Science and Protection Accreditation Council (EHAC). This gives our students the opportunity to network with major leaders in the industry and the unique opportunity to intern with the United States Public Health Service and the Center for Disease Control & Prevention.

The EHS&S degree was formerly known at the Environmental, Safety, and Occupational Health (ESOH) degree. 

Program Educational Objectives
