Course content

This distance-learning Master’s in Occupational Hygiene covers all aspects of occupational hygiene, emphasising learning, research and essential critical thinking.

Occupational hygiene is concerned with the identification, evaluation and management of chemical, physical and biological agents arising from work. There's currently a huge demand from large multinational companies for trained occupational hygienists.

Our master's course covers all aspects of occupational hygiene, and you will complete a dissertation based on an occupational hygiene topic. You'll be able to apply for funding from the British Occupational Hygiene Society to cover any research costs involved.

Occupational hygienists are employed in a wide range of industries, including the petrochemical industry, manufacturing, mining, aero-industry, service sectors and the health sector. Many hygienists are also actively involved in research in a range of related fields.

This course is accredited by two professional bodies: the Institution of Occupational Safety and Health (IOSH) as well as the British Occupational Hygiene Society (BOHS).
