Do you want a Masters qualification to help you move into the rewarding areas of Environmental Management and Health and Safety? Alternatively, do you want to enhance your career prospects by undertaking job-relevant postgraduate training? We have designed this course to deliver on both objectives.
The course is accredited by the Institution of Occupational Safety and Health (IOSH), the leading chartered body for Health and Safety professionals. On completion of the Masters, you can become a graduate member of IOSH. More and more employers are looking for membership of IOSH when it comes to recruitment and promotion.
The distance learning format allows you to study when and where you like. Our academic staff will guide you through the course and provide the support you need, no matter where you are based. Modules include ‘Environment Auditing and Management Systems’, ‘Risk Assessment and Management’ and ‘Health and Safety’.
For the Masters research project, you can negotiate a topic that reflects your personal interests and career aspirations as well as our supervisory expertise. Sunderland’s research specialisms include air pollution, contaminated land and environmental accountability.
This course is available via distance learning either full-time over 1 year or part-time over 3 years. If you would prefer to study at our campus, and to have a greater focus on environmental management, please read about our Environmental, Health and Safety MSc.
