The MSc Environmental Health Distance Learning programme has been designed specifically for those individuals with an interest in developing an expertise in environmental health issues. Aimed at graduates, or those looking to make a career change, who have a desire to acquire the professional skills associated with identifying, assessing, evaluating and controlling environmental factors that affect health, in addition to developing their ability to critically evaluate a full range of sustainable interventions which benefit human health and wellbeing.

You'll have the knowledge and experience in decision-making needed to identify and tackle environmental health issues in a wide range of contexts. You'll also be ready to contribute significantly to existing environmental health practice, and to respond to and initiate change in line with current and emerging public health issues.
