Course content

In our increasingly busy world, health and safety professionals can be responsible for mitigating environmental forces alongside preventing accidents and work-related ill-health. Build the skills and knowledge to rise to this challenge with our MSc Safety, Health and Environment postgraduate degree.

Designed to both meet the continuing professional development needs of established industry personnel, and provide a vocational qualification for those seeking a career in Safety, Health and Environment (SHE) practice, this course provides interdisciplinary postgraduate level knowledge and skill progression. The curriculum reflects the growing trend of organisations combining environmental protection and health and safety functions.

The course is accredited by both the Institute of Occupational Safety and Health (IOSH) and Institute of Environmental Management and Assessment (IEMA), as meeting the academic requirements for graduate membership. Graduates can also fast track to PIEMA (Practitioner Status) once they complete a work-based competence assessment.

You will:

  • Broaden your knowledge, as you learn aspects of both environmental and occupational health
  • Develop a skill set relevant to modern Safety, Health and Environment (SHE) practice
  • Learn how to undertake health, safety and environmental audits against a background of sustainability
