Course description

The final project is the last course taken in the certificate program. The project requires the student to focus on a specific problem and establish a structured solution within an existing organization. The student must directly integrate the content acquired through the Environmental and Occupational Health program to identify, plan, communicate and/or evaluate information about the prevention of environmental and occupational conditions in the workplace that may have an adverse impact on human health.

Learning objectives

The project will identify an environmental or occupational health need and describe how a program would be planned, implemented and communicated to address that need.

The project includes both a written and oral component. Students must be able to arrange and finance formal video conferencing technology for the presentation if they are unable to attend the university in person.
