Sunderland’s postgraduate training is designed to give you the skills and professionalism needed to take up these opportunities. Our course is accredited by The Institution of Occupational Safety and Health (IOSH) which is the leading professional body for people working in the field of Health and Safety, which demonstrates the real-world value of this Masters.
This Masters is one of the few postgraduate courses to include an eight-week placement for all students. This allows you to apply your new skills in the workplace. The placements can be extended by a further 12 weeks and many placements have led to job offers.
You will be taught by academic staff with wide practical experience as well as active research interests. Research specialisms include behavioural safety, air pollution, contaminated land and life cycle assessment.
The taught modules will cover the management of both health safety and environment, covering risk assessment, accredited management systems and monitoring and control of environmental and health and safety hazards. You can negotiate the topic of your research project to fit your personal interests and career aspirations.
If you would prefer to study by distance learning, and to have a greater focus on health and safety, we also offer Environmental Management and Assessment (Health and Safety) MSc.
