Environment & Public Health - Student Comments About EPH


These comments reflect the high level of satisfaction EPH students have expressed about the course over the past several years:

Environment and Public Health Course Content

  • All of the courses taught the practical aspects of being an REHS.
  • Content was extensive; very well put together.
  • The information we discussed gave us a good foundation for the weeks ahead.
  • It's very interesting to be able to apply the things learned in previous weeks (like microbiology) to things we are learning now, like food safety.
  • Everything was explained well; very little confusion.
  • A great volume of information; relevant and useful.
  • I've learned a vast amount [about] environmental public health issues. Can't wait to put it into practice!
  • I'm anxious to apply what I learned in the course to the field.
  • Food safety was on point.

Environment and Public Health Course Field Trips

  • The information is all good, but the best part is the practical field trips because the students can see exactly what was taught in class.
  • [The field trip] put everything together. So much easier to understand what we've been talking about when you can actually see it.
  • I loved the field trip to the sewage treatment plant.
