Environmental Toxicology & Pollution Monitoring - Online

This course investigates why pollution occurs, what the risks are to both humans and the environment, and what approaches to management we might have.

You will gain an understanding of:
- The general mechanisms of toxicity
- The basis of setting environmental quality standards
- The behaviour of contaminants in water, air and soil
- The legislative controls on contaminants
- Analysing large datasets using techniques such as Geographic Information Systems

Experience has shown that many students who register on this course are already working in the environmental field. We therefore aim to be as flexible as possible in terms of the topics studied and will give you the opportunity to focus on areas of particular interest to you and/or the organisation for which you work, where possible.

Strong links to consultancies and environmental agencies both private and governmental ensure that the course remains current and relevant to the needs of potential employers.
