Environment and Human Health

On this programme students will consider ecological public health, the relationship of health to environment, as well as the social determinants of health and healthcare systems. By looking at current theories and concepts and through the analysis of a range of information students will develop the skills and knowledge so that on graduation they will be able to inform strategies to improve the health of communities or be well placed to continue to work towards a position of an academic researcher. Students are able to access one-to-one support should they wish to undertake an internship with a Cornish business (or even further afield). They are able to take part in the Access to Internships scheme either during the course or once their studies have finished. The programme would suit graduates who are planning or already undertaking a career within public health, health promotion, environmental health and protection, occupational health, workplace wellbeing or social enterprise. The programme has been developed with reference to the training requirements of the Chartered Institute of Environmental Health and the UK Faculty of Public Health to maximise your future employability in the discipline of environment and human health sciences.

Assessment methods

Taught modules are assessed through literature reviews, essays, written reports and presentations. We use case studies and problem-based learning approaches to encourage students to work collaboratively and learn from each other. We try to include field trips to locations such as the Eden Project, local community health projects and even the beach to contextualise learning.
