Naturalist

Not surprisingly, some aspect of the natural sciences will run through the Naturalist's interests - from ecological awareness to nutrition and health. People with an interest in horticulture, land usage and farming (including fish) are Naturalists.

Some Naturalists focus on animals rather than plants, and may enjoy working with, training, caring for, or simply herding them. Other Naturalists will prefer working with the end result of nature's produce - the food produced from plants and animals. Naturalists like solving problems with solutions that show some sensitivity to the environmental impact of what they do. They like to see practical results and prefer action to talking and discussing.

Environmental Health - TU869

This course examines the wide and varied links between the environment and human health. Students on this programme gain experience of examining issues such as food safety, environmental pollution, occupational safety and health risk management and identifying how these should be managed.


Businesses and individuals must comply with a range of health & safety standards- these could be in food, occupational and environmental areas. As an Environmental Health student, you will learn how to evaluate relevant situations, solve problems, and manage these areas.

The programme is applied in nature, but has a strong scientific underpinning, especially in Years One and Two. The programme develops through subsequent years into applied areas of environmental health and examines current and developing issues. There is a period of professional practice (placement) where you can learn how to apply your knowledge of environmental health.
