UGA to Offer PhD in Environmental Health

The University of Georgia College of Public Health will soon offer the University System of Georgia’s first PhD in environmental health. The College of Public Health’s department of environmental health science is currently accepting applications and anticipates launching the program for the fall 2012 semester. The department of environmental health already supports an undergraduate program and two masters programs, as well as pre-doctoral research opportunities.

“The University of Georgia promotes an environment of excellence for its students that encourages the highest levels of scholarship, discovery, and creativity,” said Dr. Erin Lipp, the graduate coordinator for the department of environmental health sciences. “The development of a PhD program in environmental health science would enhance that environment and position the College of Public Health as a national leader in education, research, and science in the field.”
