Overview


This course represents a unique offering within the UK and Europe, differentiating itself from established ‘environmental health’ courses by focusing at a guidance level on important fields including chemical regulation and policy, risk assessment and perception, and health impact assessment. Cranfield’s Health and the Environment MSc is developed with input from the Institute of Environmental Health (IEH) and Cranfield University uses its close links with industry to ensure the relevance of the course content.

Health and the Environment MSc is part of our Environment Programme. It will provide you with:

•the scientific expertise to assess the risk of environmental factors
•the ability to influence decision and policy making
•the skills to develop integrated strategies – enabling you to minimise the risk of future environment and health issues

Learning is intensive, practical and highly relevant to current issues and concerns about environmental impacts on health. You’ll develop an awareness of a number of subjects including:

•Toxicology
•Epidemiology
•Regulatory strategies
•Risk assessment law
•Health impact assessment
•Man-made impacts on the environment

Structure


Health and the Environment MSc is made up of three components:

•A formal taught component comprising eight modules
•Group Project
•Individual Research Project

Core Modules


The formal taught component of this course comprises eight compulsory modules. Each module is two weeks in duration, consisting of one week of lectures, practical work, site visits and one week for private study. Part-time students attend the first week of each module but may continue with coursework assignments at a suitable time and location. This element constitutes 40% of the overall mark.

Introduction to Toxicology and Epidemiology
Mathematical Foundations
Principles of Toxicology
Health Diagnostics
Basic Epidemiology and Statistics
Health and Environmental Impact Assessment
Risk Assessment and Regulation

Individual Project


The four-month individual research project can be carried out within industry or academia and for part-time candidates it can be undertaken in your place of work. This key part of the course allows you to apply the research skills acquired during the taught phase of the course to a practical problem in health science and acts as an opportunity for you to meet potential future employers.

This element constitutes 40% of the overall mark.

Group Project


Group projects provide students with an understanding of working on real challenges in the work place along with skills in team working, managing resources and developing reporting and presentation skills. Many of the projects are supported by external organisations and the experience gained is highly valued by both students and prospective employers. For part-time students a dissertation usually replaces the group project. This element constitutes 20% of the overall mark.
