HUMN 8165 - Environmental Health


(4 cr.) Students in this course are offered a comprehensive overview of environmental factors that affect the health and safety of a community. Students examine causal links between chemical, physical, and biological hazards in the environment and their impact on health. They also explore the genetic, physiologic, and psychosocial factors that influence environmentally compromised health outcomes. Students investigate environmental risk assessment methods; strategies for effective management and control of environmental exposures; and legal, regulatory, and ethical considerations at the federal, state, and local levels. Using theories and methods presented in the course, students assess current solutions and consider new ways to address environmental threats, such as waste, water, air, vectors, and global warming as well as issues related to bioterrorism and disaster preparedness and management.
