Study environmental science, health science and public health legislation in areas such as food control, housing, health and safety management, and pollution to establish a varied and rewarding career in the sector. We have great links with the sector’s professional body, the Chartered Institute of Environmental Health (CIEH), and this course is taught by lecturers who won their Outstanding Team of the Year prize in 2019. UCW Public and Environmental Health graduates also won the Healthy Housing Heroes and Rising Environmental Health Star prizes at the 2018 CIEH Excellence Awards. The course is taught in the bespoke laboratories and classrooms at our Knightstone Campus, where you will undertake practical and academic studies of the scientific principles that govern biological, physical, chemical and psychological stressors in a public and environmental health context. You will also enhance your knowledge in preferred areas of professional practice and be encouraged to participate in numerous visits to undertake environmental assessments and audits. In recent years, students have undertaken fieldwork at food manufacturers, power plants, music festivals and quarries.
