The MSPH degree in Global Environmental Health Sciences prepares students to recognize, evaluate and control global environmental health problems, use quantitative and qualitative methods to evaluate environmental data, and to manage delivery of global environmental health services. Beyond the school core requirements, students select elective coursework in consultation with their academic advisor to strengthen their knowledge, skill and competence in specific areas of environmental health.The MSPH degree is designed for both pre- and mid-career professionals.
Upon completion of the MSPH degree in Global Environmental Health Sciences graduates will have the following competencies:
- Recognize, evaluate, and control global environmental health problems.
- Apply environmental health principles to solve global public health problems.
- Use quantitative and qualitative methods to evaluate environmental and health data.
- Translate research in global environmental health into practice.
- Communicate environmental health information to peer groups, environmental health practitioners, affected communities, and the public.

Integrated Learning Experience (SPHL 7950)
All students must complete an Integrated Learning Experience (ILE) (formerly culminating experience) that demonstrates the synthesis of foundational and concentration competencies. Students in the MSPH in Biostatistics conduct a public health analysis.
Applied Practice Experience (SPHL 9980)
The Applied Practice Experience (APE) (formerly practicum) is a supervised practice experience conducted in an agency or organization external to the university to gain practical experience. The APE allows students to demonstrate attainment of at least five competencies, including at least 3 from the foundational competencies (CEPH Criterion D2). The APE is conducted after completion of the foundational courses. After identifying the APE setting and defining the competencies, students enter the information into Terra Dotta. An APE report is required that summarizes the field experiences.
Selected from courses offered within the department, school, or university in consultation with an academic advisor.
