This course is offered in two modes: either face to face (on-campus) and fully online.
This course will take a broad look at current concepts in environmental health in Australia and overseas. Using the tools of toxicology, epidemiology and social science and case studies we will examine pollution in different media (air, water and soil etc), chemicals and pesticides, epidemics and food borne illness, the impact of climate change, the creation and interpretation of 'risk', environmental health risk assessment and health impact assessment, equity in environmental health, environmental politics and health and environmental sustainability and health. The course will be suitable for students who wish to gain a basic grounding in environmental health, with the option of more detailed investigation of specific concepts.
