Welcome to the Master of Science in Occupational and Environmental Hygiene

The Master of Science in Occupational and Environmental Hygiene (MSc OEH) program provides the skills and knowledge to anticipate, recognize, evaluate, and control chemical, physical and biological hazards in workplace and community environments.

Our students use academic tools (e.g. epidemiology, exposure assessment) to make work and community environments safe through applied research or experience gained in industry co-op placements. The MSc OEH program prepares graduates for careers to meet the challenges of today and into the future in research, occupational and environmental hygiene, policy analysis, health and safety, and more.
