Why wouldn’t I just major in biological, chemical or geological sciences?
Pursuing medical or scientific research careers require post-bachelor’s level education. Earning a bachelor’s degree with career specific skills in Environmental Health Sciences prepares students with entry-level career options, as well as further education in graduate or professional medical programs. Graduate and professional medical schools are extremely competitive and not all who apply will be admitted. Earning a B.S.P.H. keeps the door open for other career pathways. For instance a student with a B.S.P.H. is eligible for Sanitarian In Training (SIT) positions, leading to licensure as a Sanitarian in the State of Ohio.
