Environmental Public Health

The Environmental Public Health degree at APU prepares students to examine environmental hazards in the built and natural environment. As climate change alters our environment and poses challenges to Arctic communities, the program is critical to addressing the needs of the Circumpolar North. Through place-based instruction, field-based practicums, and applied science, EPH students look to solve current and future challenges of our region.
The Bachelor of Science in Environmental Public Health at APU is a uniquely structured program as it combines distance, campus-based, and independent learning opportunities. Initially, EPH coursework is campus-based in Anchorage with options of both daytime and evening courses. After successful completion of initial EPH coursework, students are involved in 2-3 semesters of off-campus practicum serving the needs of rural or urban Alaskan or other Arctic communities.
