A profession for a pandemic
Environmental Health professionals have never been so important to the world. After all, this is someone who instigates prevention programs and strategies for the control of communicable diseases and major outbreaks like coronavirus.
At ECU you can start a career in Environmental Health – or add to existing qualifications – through two study options:
- Diploma in Environmental Health - 1 year full-time
- Bachelor of Health Science, majoring in Occupational & Environmental Health & Safety (OEHS) - 3 years full-time
Both courses can be studied online, and completing the Diploma gives you up to one year’s credit towards the degree course.
The new OEHS major also has provisional professional accreditation with Environmental Health Australia.
