Environment & Health Major (Science Program) - ASMAJ0365

From air pollution and water contamination to climate change, the anthropogenic impact on our environment has significant repercussions on human health. A collaboration between the School of the Environment and Human Biology, the objective of the Environment and Health program is to provide students with instruction in fundamental biological sciences and to integrate a broad understanding of the environmental determinants of health.
