In recent years we have all become increasingly aware of environmental issues and their effects on our health. Problems such as diminishing fossil fuel reserves, radioactive and general waste management, and climate change have captured the imagination of the public and politicians alike. On this course, you will be encouraged to explore the traditional science disciplines of chemistry, physics and biology in combination with the discipline of health. In this way you will gain an understanding of the cause of the problems we face, and gain the skills necessary to reduce their impact on the public‚Äôs health, as well as improving the state of the environment.
