Industrial Hygiene Specialization (Bachelor of Science)

This specialization prepares students in the recognition, evaluation and control of workplace hazards. The curriculum provides a broad academic background in the sciences with emphasis on health applications. UHCL programs in Safety or Industrial Hygiene, at the Bachelors and Masters level, are designated by the Institute for Safety & Health Management (ISHM), so that graduates of these programs can now apply and become Associate Safety & Health Managers (ASHM). Our graduates can sit for the CSHM exam 2 years after graduation. This is a saving of 3 years.
