Four year Baccalaureate program in industrial hygiene.
Industrial Hygiene Program, School of Allied Health and Natural Sciences, Quinnipiac College, Hamden, Connecticut 1978 Mar' :1-20
A 4 year program in industrial hygiene at Quinnipiac College in Hamden, Connecticut, is described. The program was implemented in the fall semester of 1976. Methods to attract potential students to the program included the distribution of a brochure to firms and individuals nationwide, newspaper advertisements, an exhibit at the 1976 American Industrial Hygiene Conference, and all day meetings with science teachers and guidance counselors from high schools in the Northeast U.S. Recruitment procedures generally consist of presentations on the nature of industrial hygiene and the career opportunities available in the field, and demonstrations of industrial hygiene instruments and techniques. The observation that industrial hygienists usually do work in the field of environmental health, and vice versa, led to attempts to familiarize students of each discipline with the other. Enrollment in the industrial hygiene program was eight in September 1976, and had reached 21 in December 1977. Adjuncts to the program include classes for naval personnel and continuing education courses. The difficulty in recruiting students for industrial hygiene is noted. Degree requirements for industrial hygiene students at Quinnipiac include 33 credit hours in environmental and occupational safety and health, 52 hours in other science courses, and 8 hours in work/study experience. Copies of recruitment posters, news releases, advertisements, and selected studies by Quinnipiac industrial hygiene department members are included.
