Dana Cissel

Undergraduate Ambassador, Bachelor of Science in Environmental Health (BSEH)

My name is Dana Cissel and I am a fourth-year Environmental Health major from Dacula, Georgia. I chose the EHS major in Public Health because of the rigorous course work that combined difficult science courses and interesting environmental health classes that would give me a lot of options following my undergraduate career.

As of now, I plan on pursuing a Ph.D. in toxicology or environmental health to do research in these fields. I hope to one day work for a major university or the CDC. This major has given me a different perspective on human health: that health cannot exist without a healthy environmental as well. This is what I believe sets environmental health majors apart from traditional science majors.
