About this course

This one year interdisciplinary program will deepen your knowledge of environmental health risks and develop your skills to create viable solutions. Population growth, globalisation, and climate change are among the world's most challenging issues of our time, and our governments, industry and communities are under pressure to adapt and apply sustainable solutions.

Our Environmental Health Sciences programs will equip you with the knowledge and skills to identify and resolve complex environmental health risks and you'll learn to confidently communicate the risks and mitigation options to a range of stakeholders across all sectors.

You'll gain the skills to influence, advocate for and manage effective public health responses. During the program, you'll complete advanced-level courses that cover key areas of environmental health risk assessment and communication. A range of elective courses are also available, which provide the opportunity to develop your own specialist knowledge.

You'll graduate with a respected qualification, or you can use your graduate diploma to further your postgraduate studies. Because these courses are taken from the Master of Environmental Health Sciences, you may be eligible to receive credit for your studies.
