Department of Environmental Health

College of Public Health


Kurt MaierThanks for visiting the Environmental Health web page. If you are prospective student, there is a lot of useful information here about employment opportunities, career tracts, and curriculum requirements. There is also information about opportunities to participate in extracurricular activities with the Student Tennessee Environmental Health Association (TEHA). If you are visiting for other reasons you will find useful information about our faculty, their research, and service facilities such as the Environmental Health Sciences Laboratory. The members of our faculty are active scholars and teachers that enjoy working closely with students. Because of the size of the department, you will have many opportunities to interact with faculty members--in and out of the classroom. The staff is knowledgeable, enthusiastic, and always willing to help.

Choosing Environmental Health as a career will lead you to a challenging but satisfying career. There are opportunities in a wide range of areas, from water quality protection to occupational health. You can find jobs working for the Federal Government, State Government, Local Government, Industry, and Consulting firms.

If we can answer any questions, provide additional material or if you find something missing or a broken link feel free to call or email anyone in the department.
