Master of Science (MSc) - Environ & Occupatnl Health CH&E 6001   Environ & Occupatnl Health
The main focus of this course is to guide students to understand hazard, exposure and health outcome to navigate environmental public health. Principles and concepts underlying environments and human health comprise the major interest of this course. The nature of a variety of agents, including chemical, physical, biological, ergonomic and radiation hazards, how these agents are dispersed and transformed in the environment, the pathways of human exposure to these agents, and characterization of the health effects resulting from exposure are reviewed. The course will also discuss human environments as a determinant of health and will consider dimensions of places, spaces and health as factors in the human environment. A case study approach will be applied throughout the course.
