The science dedicated to quantifying environmental exposures, for the purpose of understanding how a person’s environment affects their health is called ‘exposure sciences’. Exposure scientists identify and quantify the hazards people encounter in their daily lives, and measure how a person interacts with their environment. Students who study Exposure Sciences work with faculty to research a variety of health problems and identify, quantify, reduce, or eliminate job and community hazards. Research topics include biological, chemical, and physical hazard assessment and controls; respiratory, reproductive, and chronic diseases; and occupational or environmental health policy.
