Public Health

SARS and Ebola, health inequality, debate about health service restructuring and provision: public health is constantly in the news, and this course equips students to meet the challenges. Students could be working in a public health-related role already or are ambitious to enter the field. Our course takes a modern approach to public health, by directly addressing the social, economic, political and other factors that influence population health and well-being. The taught aspects explore the field both globally and locally and are applicable to any country or health system. Students learn how to apply advanced theory and techniques to practical scenarios. The programme culminates in planning, researching and writing a Master's project. This can be research or work-based, focusing on the areas of particular interest.

Entry requirements

Candidates should normally have a good 1st degree or equivalent and be working, or hope to work, within any area of the public health arena; they do not necessarily need a professional qualification for access to the course, but do need to demonstrate a strong interest in public health and local health improvement; candidates with a 3rd Class Honours, or ordinary (pass) degree plus a minimum of 1 year of relevant post-graduate work experience, are considered on an individual basis; candidates who do not have a 1st degree, but have relevant work experience, may be able to gain access to the course by completing a non-graduate entry profile demonstrating, and reflecting on, achievement of generic undergraduate learning outcomes through experiential learning; international candidates are required to demonstrate the University standard of English language (IELTS) at level 6.5 (including written English) prior to commencement on a course.
