Entry requirements

A passing grade in courses comprising 105 HE credits in the two first years of the Environmental Science Programme, or the equivalent. A passing grade in the course Environmental Science B1, 30 HE credits (or equivalent) is required.

Intended learning outcomes

On completion of the course, the student should be able to:
- plan and carry out food sampling, and interpret the results
- evaluate and critically review the self-control programmes in enterprises and organisations that relate to food and health protection
- describe and analyse the connection between approach and communication with operators, media and the public
- use relevant legislation in connection with inspection and control.

Course content

The course covers the process of planning and carrying out supervision and control in food and health protection work, which among other things include risk assessment, sampling, designing action proposals and the procedure for carrying out inspection. Health effects that arise from exposure to chemical, biological and physical environmental risk factors are studied in the course. The course also covers legal rules that concern food and health protection. Communication and behavioural science are studied from a practice and inspection perspective.

Teaching and working methods

This course utilises work in tutorial groups, lectures, seminars, workshops and written assignments. Additional resource sessions may be organised in the course. The students should also study independently.


The course is examined through oral and written work, such as project reports and individual assignments. A passing grade in the course also requires active participation in tutorial group meetings, seminars and other practical parts. Active participation at the final review of the course is also required.

If the LiU coordinator for students with disabilities has granted a student the right to an adapted examination for a written examination in an examination hall, the student has the right to it. If the coordinator has instead recommended for the student an adapted examination or alternative form of examination, the examiner may grant this if the examiner assesses that it is possible, based on consideration of the course objectives.

Students failing an exam covering either the entire course or part of the course twice are entitled to have a new examiner appointed for the reexamination.

Students who have passed an examination may not retake it in order to improve their grades.


Three-grade scale, U, G, VG

Other information

Planning and implementation of a course must take its starting point in the wording of the syllabus. The course evaluation included in each course must therefore take up the question how well the course agrees with the syllabus. 

The course is carried out in such a way that both men´s and women´s experience and knowledge is made visible and developed.
