The course will teach you how to identify and assess health and safety risks and take measures to safeguard and improve health and safety in a variety of settings. You’ll gain in depth understanding of all five key areas of environmental health food safety, housing, environmental protection, occupational health and public health.

The MSc course features nine compulsory modules: four core modules, two health and safety modules, two food safety modules and a practical food inspection module, plus a module looking at professional practice and a research methods module (which includes your dissertation). There’s also the option of just studying the four core modules to gain a PG Cert, or leaving out the professional practice and research methods modules (and hence not doing a dissertation) to achieve a PG Dip.

The core modules will cover the impact of different factors on public health; human anatomy, physiology and toxicology; the spread and control of diseases; microbiology; health protection measures; food borne illnesses; auditing premises for food safety; pollution; inequality and deprivation; housing and health; health and safety at work; and law and ethics. For the professional practice module, you’ll apply your knowledge by working on case studies in groups and finding solutions to problems.

The two health and safety modules will focus on identifying and managing health and safety risks at work, and current laws and regulations. The food safety modules will cover methods of food storage and processing; methods of ensuring food safety; techniques for inspecting and analysing food; legal requirements and food safety standards; and protecting the public from food that is not fit for human consumption. You’ll also cover the health effects of diet and nutrition.

For your research project, you’ll design and carry out your own original investigation into an area of your choosing, and present your findings in a 12,000 word thesis and a presentation to your tutor and fellow students. The research methodology module will cover experimental design, quantitative and qualitative analysis, and management, presentation and computing skills. You’ll learn to evaluate different research techniques, search for and review relevant literature, come up with a research proposal, and analyse and present data.
