Make a clean impact

When a natural disaster hits—as is all too common today—you can expect to hear of survivors in desperate need of potable water and other necessities due to the destruction of the local infrastructure. A degree in environmental health and water quality technology can set you on the path to becoming the person who helps in these situations, and, beyond that, will prepare you to more routinely provide services that insure public health and safety.

Program Overview

Learn how to protect the environment and individuals from biological, chemical, and physical hazards with an environmental health degree. 

Concordia University Wisconsin teamed up with Milwaukee Area Technical College (MATC) to provide the bachelor’s of science in environmental health and safety program. You will receive state-of-the-art training in environmental health and water quality from experts at MATC coupled with the top-notch liberal arts program and large selection of minors offered at Concordia.

Our environmental health degree program offers two different routes to best fit your goals and needs while you obtain your degree: enroll at Concordia for a traditional four-year experience and commute the 3+ miles to MATC, or divide your education into two distinct periods by completing MATC’s two-year, associate-level program prior to enrolling at Concordia. Either route will equip you with the skills needed to make an impact.

What to Expect

Our environmental health degree and water quality program will teach you how to identify, monitor, and evaluate environmental health hazards. You will learn to promote environmental protection, improvement, and sustainability. Furthermore, you will be ready to apply relevant guidelines and regulations, control and handle hazardous materials, and perform water and wastewater analysis.
