EHS Concentration in Environment and Security

In this Section

Professionals in the field of EHS often interact and collaborate with professionals in criminal justice and homeland security, and inclusion of specific criminal justice courses will better prepare graduates for these interactions. While there are many aspects to security, the relationship to the environment will be considered here, environmental, forensic, water, air, and energy. A single degree cannot encompass all aspects, yet the concentration can draw on courses and research in the areas of environmental health science (Institute for the Sustainable Environment), forensic chemistry (School of Arts & Science), and biometrics (School of Engineering) currently taught at Clarkson as well as homeland security courses taught at SUNY Canton.
