Additional Information:

Life's too short to take just any job. The field of environmental health needs people that want to make a difference with their careers. If you have the heart, desire and skills to save lives and protect New Jersey's residents and environment, then join the next generation of environmental health professionals. The Environment and Public Health (EPH) summer course will get you there. To land a job, you need broad technical skills in areas ranging from epidemiological investigation to environmental inspection to emergency response. You also need experience and the REHS license. This seven-week course and accompanying 200-hour (five-week) internship provides the expertise and experience you need and helps prepare you for the REHS licensing exam.

After the classroom session concludes, we'll place you in a five-week internship with a local health department. You will gain hands-on experience that complements the skills that you've learned in the EPH classroom and prepares you for a successful career in public health.

Graduates of the EPH program and field training are eligible to take the New Jersey licensing exam to become a Registered Environmental Health Specialist (REHS). In New Jersey, an REHS acts as the front-line investigator for many of the state's public health and environmental regulations.

Target Audience: Current Students,  Undergraduate Students,  Graduate Students,  Alumni,  General Public
