This exciting new programme will equip professionals with the skills, knowledge and networks to drive sustainable innovation for health and wellbeing in the design, retrofit and operation of buildings. Based within The Bartlett, the UCL Institute for Environmental Design and Engineering is a world-leading research centre.

Degree information

Students will focus on the role of the built environment in health and wellbeing within the context of the sustainability agenda; key design, engineering and public health principles; practical tools applicable in professional practice to sustainably support health and wellbeing in buildings; relevant benchmarking, modelling and monitoring methods; and approaches to creating a business case for healthy and productive buildings.

Students undertake modules to the value of 180 credits.

The programme consists of six core modules (90 credits), two optional modules (30 credits) and a report (60 credits). A Postgraduate Diploma (120 credits, full-time nine months) is offered. The programme consists of six core modules (90 credits) and two optional modules (30 credits).

Core modules
-Health, Comfort and Wellbeing in the Built Environment
-Health and Wellbeing in Cities: Theory and Practice
-Indoor Air Quality in Buildings
-Integrated Building Design for Health, Comfort and Wellbeing
-Methods of Environmental Analysis
-Wellbeing in Buildings: Theory and Practice

Optional modules - students choose two of the following:
-Building Acoustics
-Designing Inclusive Places
-Light, Lighting and Wellbeing in Buildings

Dissertation/report
All students undertake an independent research project culminating in a 10,000-word report.

Teaching and learning
The programme is delivered through a combination of lectures, seminars, interactive workshops, tutorials and lab demos. Assessment is through coursework, design reports, written examinations and a dissertation.

Careers

It is anticipated that students taking this programme will find employment in architectural and engineering companies and specialist consultancies dedicated to the design and/or evaluation of sustainable buildings with a strong focus on health, wellbeing and human performance (e.g. productivity). Additional career paths may be found within in-house building design and operational teams, and in public sector agencies concerned with built environment and/or health and wellbeing issues. The MSc can also provide a foundation for MPhil/PhD research.

Employability
The programme is designed with employability in mind. Students will, for example, use simulation tools similar to those used by commercial companies for thermal analysis or measuring indoor air quality. You will also gain hands-on experience of monitoring environmental conditions within buildings, and of gathering and evaluating occupant feedback. As awareness of the impact that the built environment can have on health, wellbeing and sustainability increases, so too does the demand for professionals with relevant expertise. Successful graduates will understand the factors affecting the business case for improved health, wellbeing and human performance in buildings.

Course overview

Evidence shows that work performance is improved if employees have a positive physical and mental wellbeing. Many organisations have therefore realised that they should take a proactive approach to wellness, rather than focusing on illness and absence management. This has created a need for highly skilled health, safety and wellbeing managers.

A key component of this course is a major piece of independent work, where you will focus on a specific area of interest and develop an in-depth project.

You will study health and safety regulation and legislation, communication, management tools, risk assessment, control and mitigation for a range of workplace hazards typical in most industries and organisations. You will also examine related issues such as the impact of societal factors on health in the workplace, and the wider public health agenda.

Health, Safety and Wellbeing MSc is a new course at the University of Sunderland, and is accredited with The Institution of Occupational Safety and Health (IOSH). As a student on this course, you will be able to join IOSH as a student member and attend IOSH seminars offered by the North East regional group.

We strongly encourage you to take a placement as part of your degree, so that you can apply and develop your learning in a real work context. A placement enables you to augment your experience of work, and also build up a professional network. When you graduate you will have the knowledge, skills and confidence to take on roles in health, safety and wellbeing in a wide range of public, private and regulatory organisations.

Course detail

You are recommended to commence your studies with the Enhancing Health and Wellbeing module. This module will introduce you to the core theoretical concepts related to the promotion and enhancement of health and wellbeing, and you will be supported to reflect upon your career to date, considering how you would like to progress in preparation for your learning journey ahead. This initial support will prepare you to take control of your learning throughout the rest of the programme.

The modules you undertake next can be chosen from a range offered within the CCCU postgraduate portfolio, your choice of modules will reflect your learning and development needs and where relevant those of your supporting organisation. If you opt for the generic programme award title, e.g. MSc Health and Wellbeing, the choice of modules is up to you; if you opt for a MSc with negotiated endorsement e.g. MSc Health and Wellbeing (plus negotiated endorsement) then you will need to identify modules that can demonstrate your learning in relationship to this endorsement in conjunction with your academic tutor and these will need to be agreed by the Exam Board.

Where a specific option for a topic you want to study is not offered within the portfolio of postgraduate modules, you can opt to study it a bespoke manner, by undertaking the Negotiated Learning module. This module provides the opportunity to study at and for work with the support of an academic supervisor.

You will complete your MSc programme of studies with the research modules. You will undertake two modules – the Research Approaches and Methods module (RAM) which develops knowledge and understanding of research methods, followed by a Dissertation or Project. The aim of the research modules within your programme are to enable you to develop sound knowledge and understanding of different research approaches and methods which will enable you to plan and undertake a substantive dissertation or project in a topic relevant to your profession. At the end of these modules you will be able to produce clear aims and objectives for your study and be able to select and evaluate key research and other evidence. You will be able to select and justify a study design or methodology and be able to analyse and interpret relevant data. You will be able to reflect on the processes undertaken in carrying out a dissertation or project and discuss findings in relation to theoretical perspectives and your professional practice.
