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.
