Abstract
The Environmental and Occupational Sciences (EOHS) Program of the Hunter College School of Health Sciences has been a member of the Universities Occupational Safety and Health Education and Research Center (UOSHERC) since 1978. It has a strong, stable faculty and a core industrial hygiene curriculum, which has been in place for well over a decade. Between 7/1/97 and 6/30/00, sixty-one persons graduated from the EOHS program/track with an MS degree, an average of about 20 IH graduates per year, about half of whom are females and almost 40 percent persons of color. Ninety-five percent the graduates are working or studying professionally. Of those working, about half are employed primarily as industrial hygienists; most of the rest have mixed occupational and environmental responsibilities. Dr. Jack Caravanos, CIH, CSP, has directed the EOHS academic track since February 1997. Dr. David Kotelchuck, CIH, is,UOSHERC Deputy Director and continues to direct the NIOSH industrial hygiene program at Hunter College. The faculty has proposed modification of the MS curriculum in preparation for ABET accreditation, and has now applied for this accreditation, with an anticipated approval time of Spring 2002.
