The degree program requires 45 core hours of courses. The general education and science classes will be completed at St. Charles Community College (SCC), with the environmental health courses from Missouri Southern offered online. Exams from those courses will be proctored by faculty at SCC.
Students who complete the program and pass their senior assessment exam obtain their Certified Environmental Health Specialist credentials with the state of Missouri.
“The agreement demonstrates the importance of bringing faculty members from each campus together and allow them to create educational pathways that will lead to productive careers,” said Chris Breitmeyer, vice president for academic and student affairs. “Our partnership with MSSU provides access to a quality program and we hope this is the first step in forging more collaborative relationships between our institutions.”
