Overview

With over 30 years’ experience of teaching Environmental Toxicology, and 19 years teaching via online distance learning, the course team has a significant track record in Ecotoxicology education. 

The specific objectives of the Environmental Toxicology and Pollution Monitoring course from Ulster University are to develop 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 Infomation Systems.

Why Study Environmental Toxicology & Pollution Monitoring?

This subject has origins in development processes such as resource extraction and product manufacture, and this creates impacts that are seen in all parts of our global systems; on land and in air and water. In recent years the need for professionals with a clear understanding of pollution issues has grown steadily across a wide range of sectors.

The majority of 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.

Our students enrol for this course to develop their professional knowledge and to acquire new skills. They do this to improve their career and promotion prospects, change their career, or, if they are recently graduated, to specialise in a new subject area to enhance their job prospects.
