Having completed an FdSc in Public and Environmental Health (or a similar subject) already, our BSc(Hons) Public and Environmental Health will help you take your knowledge of natural and human-made worlds and systems an important step further. Gain the level of scientific and technological knowledge that’s needed to work in a local authority or in industry as an environmental health practitioner (EHP). Establish the context in which different stressors impact on humans and how different situations require environmental health intervention. Develop your understanding of food safety, housing and health, health and safety, environmental protection and public health – specialising in one area in particular. Learn to work collaboratively and productively with other professionals and communities. Explore fields of professional engagement that are vital to the process of identifying hazards, assessing risk and interpreting compliance against standards, guidelines and other legislative tools. These issues run strongly through the practice-based element of the course. Environmental health practitioners (EHPs) are employed in local authorities, commerce and industry. Work is varied, often combining office and field work. You’ll provide specialist and technical advice and help prevent future public and environmental health problems through health protection and promotion programmes, and getting involved in the environmental health planning process.
