What is Bachelor of Science (Hons) Environmental Health?

Our environment and lifestyle affects our health - the air we breathe, the water we drink, the food we eat, our homes and workplaces can all have an influence on our state of health. Students on this programme gain experience of examining issues such as food safety, environmental pollution, occupational safety and health risk management through lectures, laboratories, studio work, field visits and professional work placement. Environmental Health practitioners play an important role in private industry and in the State sector in ensuring that proper standards are achieved. They do this through advice, education, monitoring and regulation.


Students may be required to attend classes at locations across the Institute.
