Public Health

This course is for professionals from clinical and non-clinical backgrounds who aspire to solve public health problems. Students often want to move into a leadership or management role and find the content - which covers everything from planning evaluation studies to designing a public health programme - comprehensive and relevant. The Masters in Public Health programme will equip you with skills in research methods and theoretical knowledge in public health sciences, which you will need to lead and evaluate public health programmes. Our approach is non-clinical and informed by evidence-based practice. We explore how public health is mapped and measured, and use case studies to unpick how socio-economic and political forces influence the public health agenda. We also consider the unique ethical issues that arise within public health interventions.

Entry requirements

Applicants should hold an upper second class honours degree or the equivalent from an international institution.
Relevant employment experience in the health sector is taken into consideration. Applicants who have a lower second class honours degree but have relevant employment experience in the health sector may be considered.
