This course covers key aspects of public health. Students study the complex determinants of public health and how these influence the development of policy and practice. Students develop skills in accessing, interpreting and critically evaluating data and research evidence, and the ability to plan, design and manage their own research project. Throughout the course students are encouraged to apply acquired knowledge and skills to persistent public health problems. The course: equips students with knowledge of the theories, concepts, tools and techniques for public health; facilitates knowledge translation from academic public health to the promotion and protection of population health and well-being; enables students to evaluate policy and practice and challenge orthodoxy in public health as appropriate; develops skills further in planning, designing and independently managing a research project.
Please note that due to current anticipated changes to NHS education and HE funding, information relating to funding will be updated on Teesside University website.
