Master of Public Health

A key strength of the programme is the core skills and knowledge it provides in epidemiology, qualitative research methods and evaluation of policy and practice. It is an essential programme if you are working in any area of public health, governmental organisations; health services management; policy and planning; housing; transport; or for community groups and NGOs. Our students are medics, doctors, nurses, occupational therapists, pharmacists, environmental health officers and professionals from various sectors of health services. The programme reflects current changes in national and international policy. The practice of public health is thus very broad and consequently its practitioners come from a variety of backgrounds, as reflected in the broad range of expertise of our staff; because of this, students have the opportunity to study a varied academic programme in depth, in an environment that is both challenging and supportive. The ptohtamme provides a solid foundation for public health research and practice in a variety of public, NGO, and international settings.
