This programme has been designed for busy health professionals looking to gain a recognised qualification from a UK university while continuing to work at the same time. This course will provide students with a systematic and critical understanding of the key concepts underlying public health. Through its alignment with the Public Health Skills and Knowledge Framework this course will develop your ability to undertake independent research culminating in a dissertation project as a capstone to your studies. This course is the most comprehensive of our Public Health programmes, incorporating the opportunity to complete an independent piece of original research. Building on the Postgraduate Diploma module base, you will also study research design and critical appraisal and complete a dissertation project of your choosing. In addition, you will have the opportunity to complete two further optional modules to tailor your study further. The course culminates in the completion of a dissertation research project where you will have the opportunity to put what you have learned into practice and demonstrate your ability to undertake independent research.
Core modules: health promotion (20 credits); topics in public health (20 credits); health needs assessment and priority setting (20 credits); epidemiology (20 credits); advanced practice in healthcare (20 credits); research methods (20 credits); dissertation (50 credits).
We adopt an assignment-based approach to assessment instead of exams. Assessment will be based on a combination of written assignments, engagement in online discussion forums and the completion of a dissertation based on an individual research project.
