Course content

Environmental toxicology and environmental pollution have their origins in development processes such as resource extraction and product manufacture and use, and this creates impacts that are seen in all parts of our global systems; on land and in air and water. To be effective environmental managers we need to understand why pollution occurs, what the risks are to both human and non-human environments, and what approaches to management we might have. If these issues interest you then the PgDip/MSc Environmental Toxicology and Pollution Monitoring course offers you exciting opportunities to investigate these topics further. This fully online distance-learning course provides advanced training in environmental toxicology, monitoring techniques and global environmental legislation.

This course is ideal if you are already working in the environmental field or wish to pursue a career in this area as it fulfils the demand for trained personnel in environmental regulatory agencies, in companies subject to this type of regulation, and in businesses involved in providing support services such as monitoring and consultancy.
