Occupational Health and Industrial Hygiene graduate certificate programs at University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences
Graduate Certificate in Rural and Global Public Health. There is a growing need within the state of Arkansas for individuals to be trained in the core elements of environmental and occupational health. This Graduate Certificate in Environmental and Occupational Health will provide practical knowledge and tools that can be immediately applied in industrial, manufacturing, hospital, construction and other health settings. This certificate will enhance the individual’s ability to recognize, identify, measure, and control chemical, physical and biological hazards. This program of study requires twelve (12) semester credit hours. These 12 semester hours can later be applied to the MPH program in Environmental and Occupation Health if the student decides to later continue their studies in the College. Six credits may be completed as a non-degree seeking student. If a student is focused on the occupational setting, the American Board of Industrial Hygiene (ABIH) requires, in addition to a bachelor’s degree in science and appropriate experience, 12 credit hours in industrial hygiene related coursework for certification as a Certified Industrial Hygienist (CIH). Occupational Health and Industrial Hygiene is supported by the Environmental and Occupational Health. Applicants must possess the minimum of a US baccalaureate degree equivalent to be considered for admission. A letter of intent is also required (1 to 2 pages in length) and should express the reasons for interest in the Certificate program and any relevant background information on studies and job experiences. The coursework is practical and effective in dealing with environmental and occupational threats. Many of the classes can be taken online. Boozman College of Public Health is Accredited by CEPH, CAHME (for MHA program) and is a member of ASPPH.
