1. Courses are offered through the Department of Community Health Sciences and can be taken as a specialization in emergency public health. The specialization in the area of public health and disasters explores the adverse effects of disasters and the public health and emergency management principles that can be applied to reduce those effects. Students wishing to pursue this specialization are required to complete four courses through CPHD and participate in a disaster-related research project or relevant field internship. A letter of specialization will be given to those students who have successfully completed the required courses and internship.
