Environmental Health Sciences - PhD
The PhD degree requires a significant program of study and research that qualifies the recipient to work independently and contribute to the advancement of the field of knowledge. The emphasis is on mastery of the field and particularly on the acquisition of research skills as a basis for original work.
Students admitted to the PhD degree program are assigned faculty advisors who will provide guidance throughout the program. Students are encouraged to get to know their advisor and meet with him/her at least twice each semester.
This information serves as a resource to be used by the student and the advisor in planning the program of study with a specialization in Environmental Health Science. For additional information about PhD requirements, students are directed to the College of Public Health (CPH) Graduate Student Handbook and to the Graduate School Handbook (available online at http://www.gradsch.osu.edu/).
