Why study the Graduate Diploma in Environmental Health Sciences?

Physical, chemical and microbiological hazards present constantly changing health challenges. Coupled with population growth, globalisation, and climate change, the potential for emerging or re-emerging environmental health risks and threats to human health puts governments, industry and communities under pressure to adapt and apply sustainable solutions. The Graduate Diploma in Environmental Health Sciences (GDipEnvHlthSc) is an interdisciplinary program that teaches courses relevant to environmental health practice; it is a collaboration between UQ School of Public Health and the Queensland Alliance for Environmental Health Sciences, an internationally renowned research centre incorporating the former National Research Centre for Environmental Toxicology (Entox). This one-year program aims to equip public health professionals with knowledge and skills to address complex environmental health challenges. Such challenges require graduates to develop anticipatory and integrated responses, which in turn rely on an understanding of the interrelationship among risk factors related to a broad range of hazards and contexts, skills in coordination across sectors and jurisdictions, and risk communication with communities, the private sector and government agencies.
