Public Health

The course will develop students' public health skills and establish an advanced knowledge base for their chosen field of public health practice, whether in the UK or internationally. Public health requires an interdisciplinary approach to the analysis of health problems and the professional practice needed to address them, and meeting the new complex health problems of the 21st century requires integration of thinking and practice across many disciplines.

Entry requirements

Applicants should hold an Honours degree preferably in a subject associated with public health, health or social care or other subjects of relevance to public health and health improvement. If applicants do not have a degree we are open to discuss equivalents. The programme is open to professionals and non-professionals as well as those in practice and not in practice. Students may be asked to an informal interview, depending on their application information. All students are asked to supply an academic reference, preferably from an academic who has taught them in the last few years. If this is not possible, a professional reference is required.

Course modules

Modules include: introduction to public health; health education and promotion; health policy, economics and management; methods in public health; dissertation. Optional modules: global health; community focussed health improvement in the United Kingdom; climate change, sustainability and public health; health and social care quality.

Assessment methods

Assignments are mostly written, including essays, case studies, reports and personal independent projects. However there are a written exam, presentations and seminars.
