This Program is designed for those concerned with the balance of the environment and human life. Students study how humans and ecosystems are affected by each other and how to prolong the existence of both. Every program will vary, but common topics may include radiation and food protection, water and noise pollution, and solid and hazardous waste. Examples of classes are environmental biology, public health science, human toxicology, and instrumental analysis.
Pursuing a diploma in this area is beneficial for those who want to work in the area of environmental health but dont want to spend a lot of time in school. It also helps bridge the way to more advanced study for those who want to work in higher-level positions.
