Course summary

This distance-learning Master’s in Occupational Hygiene covers all aspects of occupational hygiene, emphasising learning, research and essential critical thinking. Occupational hygiene is concerned with the identification, evaluation and management of chemical, physical and biological agents arising from work. There's currently a huge demand from large multinational companies for trained occupational hygienists. Our master's course covers all aspects of occupational hygiene, and you will complete a dissertation based on an occupational hygiene topic. You'll be able to apply for funding from the British Occupational Hygiene Society to cover any research costs involved. Occupational hygienists are employed in a wide range of industries, including the petrochemical industry, manufacturing, mining, aero-industry, service sectors and the health sector. Many hygienists are also actively involved in research in a range of related fields.

Nearly all students on our course do so to improve on their current role (on joining) and as a tool to change careers. Both public and private sectors are in need of highly qualified professional people and so this course brings with it good opportunity. The School of Design has an Employability Officer for students to consult about specific opportunities relevant to the course. They work closely with professionals in industry to ensure you are well-prepared for the workplace and have already begun to build your professional network by the time you graduate.
