Department Website

The University of Washington's School of Public Health, of which the Department of Environmental and Occupational Health Sciences is a part, ranks 6th nationally in the U.S. & World Report rankings of graduate schools. Our academic programs are designed to give students the knowledge and skills they need to be successful in their careers.

The Master of Science degrees students study environmental factors and exposures that affect human health and learn how to identify and prevent the adverse effects that come from exposure. The Doctor of Philosophy degrees prepare scientists and professionals to recognize, investigate, evaluate, and prevent exposures that may increase the chance of disease or injury. They are trained to communicate the effects of the environment on human health.

Because our faculty and staff are involved in environmental and occupational health projects, they are able to bring experience and understanding of current issues to the classroom and take students out into the field. Faculty research and department service activities translate into hands-on training opportunities for students. Alumni go on to take positions in academia, research, private industry such as Boeing and Amazon, and local or federal government agencies.
