occupational safety and health
The goal of the Occupational Safety and Health PhD major is to educate and train, to the highest level of competency in teaching and research, men and women as occupational safety and health professionals for industry, government, and academia.
The profession of occupational safety and health is very broad but is generally recognized to consist of three disciplines broadly defined as ergonomics, industrial hygiene, and safety. The Occupational Safety and Health PhD major would allow students to focus their study in any one of these areas or to study more broadly in more than one area.
