Public Health

Are you keen to improve public health and develop the knowledge required to reflect on current concerns and practice issues within this field? Popular with both UK-based and international students, the Master of Public Health course has been specifically designed for those who wish to develop their career within public health, in addition to those looking to promote the health of the public as part of their current professional role. Upon successful graduation you will possess in-depth research and enquiry skills, and a critical understanding of their application in a public health employment context. The practical application of these academic skills will equip you with the knowledge and approaches necessary to implement a broad range of interventions to improve public health outcomes in different employment contexts. For example, dealing with pandemic flu epidemics, increasing accessibility to health care services, reducing obesity or malaria rates and community development to enable disadvantaged communities. Please note the part time route (180 credits) is to be completed in 2 years.
