BSc Environmental Health

Environmental Health can be considered to be ‘the science and art of preventing disease, prolonging life, and promoting health through the organised efforts of society’.

The programme is accredited by the Chartered Institute of Environmental Health and as such is the first step for those wishing to develop a career as an Environmental Health Practitioner.  However, the programme provides students with a depth of knowledge and understanding, as well as a wide range of skills that would enable them to follow a variety of career paths.

The BSc (Hons) Environmental Health offers students the opportunity to explore some of the key environmental issues affecting everyday life and also enables them to broaden their awareness of their environment and learn how to make a positive impact on the world around them while gaining experience in the key environmental health areas of environmental protection, health and safety, health protection, food safety and housing.  The degree also incorporates a number of the elements which are required for registration as an EHP – namely the food practical examination and integrated professional assessment, as well as being an accredited course.
