What is the Environmental and Occupational Management Program?
Environmental and Occupational Management (ENM) is a broadly based interdisciplinary field that combines business management with regulatory law and environmental law.
Individuals with a Bachelor of Science degree in the field will be involved in policy-making procedures for government and industry. They will become specialized in Environmental Compliance, Plant Safety, Public Policy and Law.
Graduates will carry out administrative functions involved in the interpretation and implementation of law, governmental regulations, public policy, worker safety regulations, environmental protection, occupational health, occupational safety, and regulatory compliance at the state, federal, and international levels.
Why should you major in ENM?
Methodist University ENM is Recognized by FEMA
Methodist University is listed on the Emergency Management Institute
(FEMA) website as offering courses related to emergency management.
Why was the program implemented?
In recent years, a variety of fields of expertise have come to the forefront in both governmental and business/industrial operations, including worker safety, plant operational safety, industrial hygiene, environmental protection, and safeguarding of the general public.
Historically, it has been extremely difficult for agencies to hire someone educated in all of these fields. After extensive consultation with governmental and industrial representatives, Methodist University in Fayetteville, NC, established this program to fill the immediate and future needs.
The Environmental and Occupational Management Program will train graduates who are in high demand to work at the administrative level in these and other areas.
