The University of Iowa’s Department of Occupational & Environmental Health has the only Agricultural Safety & Health degree program in the country.
Our MS program will teach you about the industry of agriculture and the occupational and environmental exposures and risks associated with that industry. You will learn the necessary skills for anticipation, diagnosis, exposure assessment, treatment, and prevention of agricultural illnesses and injuries. You will graduate prepared to work as an agricultural safety and health specialist in education, health care, insurance, and agribusinesses.
Working with your advisor, you may choose elective courses for a concentration in one of these focus areas: industrial hygiene, injury prevention, environmental health, or communication. This additional specialization will help you stand out in the job market.
