Protecting one is about protecting the other.

We understand that the health of communities and the environment are two vital issues dependent upon one another. That’s why we offer public and environmental health courses at Swinburne.

My course has provided a broad range of interesting and engaging subjects. I’ve particularly enjoyed the science-based subjects such as microbiology and food science. One of the highlights was conducting laboratory analysis on the bacteria that exist on your hands and in your mouth – that was an eye-opener!
