Environmental Health

The air we breathe, the water we drink, the food we eat, our homes and workplaces all can influence our state of health. Businesses and individuals must comply with a range of health & safety standards, in food, occupational and environmental areas. In this course, you’ll study issues such as food safety, environmental pollution, occupational safety and health risk management, and how these should be managed. The course is applied in nature, but has a strong scientific underpinning, especially in Years 1 and 2. In Years 3 and 4, you’ll expand into applied areas of environmental health and examine current and developing issues. Areas of study include environmental health, microbiology, building technology, ecology and entomology, food and water chemistry, noise and radiation, occupational safety and health, food safety, health promotion, air quality, housing policy and defects, and environmental health protection. In the period of professional practice (placement), you’ll learn how to apply your knowledge of environmental health.
