Professionals in the field of EHS often interact and collaborate with professionals in criminal justice and homeland security, and including specific criminal justice courses will better prepare graduates for these interactions. While security has many aspects, such as environmental, forensic, water, air, and energy, the relationship to the environment will be considered here. A single degree cannot encompass all aspects, yet the concentration can draw on courses and research in the areas of environmental health science (Institute for the Sustainable Environment), forensic chemistry (School of Arts & Science), and biometrics (School of Engineering) currently taught at Clarkson, as well as homeland security courses taught at SUNY Canton.
