Course Description

The Department of Public Health and Policy at the University of Liverpool has a flourishing research portfolio in Public Health and Health Inequalities. The University of Liverpool has been at the forefront of Public Health for over 150 years and now has an influential voice on the world stage and close links with many institutions, disciplines and public health bodies. The aim of the Department is to contribute to the improvement and maintenance of the health of people, locally, nationally and internationally, through:
• excellence in education and research
• the development of a learning environment that encourages staff and students to fulfil their potential

The Department provides advice to governmental policy makers locally, nationally and internationally and hosts the World Health Organisation Collaborating Centre for Policy Research on the Social Determinants of Health. The Department is home to a multi-disciplinary team of academic staff drawn from a range of subjects including medical and health sciences, epidemiology, sociology, community development, policy analysis, statistics, and history. It is actively involved in research, education and health service work related to promoting the health of the public.

The Master of Public Health programme is delivered at both our Liverpool and London campuses. On completion of the Master of Public Health, students should have a foundation in the science and art of public health, including an understanding of the concepts of health and disease and factors, which may affect these. The resulting knowledge, skills and attitudes should enable them to put public health principles into effect in a variety of settings including research, practice and the interface of applied research. They will be able to demonstrate an in-depth systematic understanding of public health research and all students carry out a small-scale original research project that conveys the public health context and implications.

Public Health encompasses a broad range of subjects some of which require traditional analytical scientific thinking (for example statistics) whilst others require a more flexible and creative approach (for example health inequalities). The practice of effective public health requires the synthesis of these aspects and the MPH is designed to enable students to gain competence in the application of these disciplines.

The modules are designed to cover the set syllabus whilst allowing students the flexibility to learn in a way and time best suited to their individual needs. Areas that are most effectively covered by interaction and discussion, as well as those that may be conceptually difficult, are covered by direct contact. Even here a didactic teaching style is used only as necessary, with the emphasis of teaching being on interaction and experiential learning. The intention is to develop the ability in students for self-directed learning, so the styles of teaching and learning change in emphasis through the modules. In the early stages the material is subject based but as the student matures in knowledge and skill the material becomes more interactive and problem solving in approach. Broadly a student will be encouraged and guided in the development of five key areas:

1. In-depth knowledge of the main disciplines of public health.
2. Ability in self-directed learning and management of personal development.
3. Ability to critically evaluate, reflect and analyse.
4. Effective communication of ideas in both written and spoken formats.
5. Ability to work effectively both alone and in teams.

The programme offers the option of full-time study over one year, or part-time for up to 3 years for students who wish to study while in employment and where the programme can form an integral part of their professional development.

Here’s what some of our students said about the MPH Programme at the University of Liverpool:

“I loved the level of interaction and discussion. I’ve really enjoyed this year and I’ve found it very useful.”
“Fantastic lecturers. The most amazing support and constantly guiding the course along.”

“Standard of teaching – lecturers / speakers was exceptional. I enjoyed meeting and interacting with the people in the group as we were from quite different backgrounds. “
“The MPH at Liverpool has been key in enabling progression to my current role.”

“The MPH has proved to be a real asset and I certainly wouldn't have got the job without having studied at Liverpool.”

“The modules covered a wide range of topics and issues relevant to public health.”

“Well coordinated – lots of support. Lots of enthusiastic tutors.”

Learning and assessment

Introduction

Studying online gives you the freedom to study when and where it suits you – at home, during your lunch hour or anywhere else you have internet access.

All of our online courses have an indicative study duration which is a guide to how long your course will take to complete. The actual duration may be longer or shorter depending on your speed of study, study options chosen and module availability. It’s possible to complete your studies faster than the indicative course duration by doubling up on modules at certain times; however, minimum study durations do apply.

All of our courses have regular start dates throughout the year. Our academic year is organised into modules, typically with a one- or two-week break between modules and a structured three-week break for the Christmas period. Students will receive a course timetable during the application process.

Teaching methods and style

As we are a 100% online university, we utilise a Virtual Learning Environment instead of a traditional campus. The system tracks and manages the learning process in real-time and provides you with immediate access to your learning materials.

This learning platform allows both students and tutors to actively take part in real-time conversations and you can listen to, and view, live lectures and seminars over the internet. All courses are delivered in English only.

You are supported throughout your course by a dedicated Student Adviser and have the opportunity to regularly interact with fellow students and your tutor. To ensure you receive the support you need from your tutor, we cap our class sizes at 20 students.

Assessment

Our MPH course includes both compulsory and optional modules, so you can tailor the content of your course to more closely fit your interests and aspirations.

We adopt an assignment-based approach to assessment instead of exams. Assessment for the MPH 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.

You will be able to see your current provisional marks from the start of the programme, allowing you to evaluate the success of your current study methods and clearly identify areas to improve. We believe that this transparency gives you the information you need to make the most of your Masters course.

We achieve this by:

  • showing your marks clearly in your gradebook, which can be viewed whenever you log onto the learning platform;
  • the rapid turnaround of work assessed to ensure that your gradebook is always up to date;
  • assessing your work throughout the module rather than waiting for end of year exams;
  • ensuring you have regular contact with your Student Adviser; and
  • the simplicity and transparency in the design of our assessment criteria.

We also have a policy of ensuring that work submitted by students is authentic. As well as the fact that all work is frequently assessed, we use a well-established electronic monitoring system to check for plagiarism.

On successful completion of your MPH qualification, you will be invited to attend a graduation ceremony at the University of Essex, Colchester Campus.

Career prospects

We are dedicated to improving employability amongst our graduates. Our online courses give you the opportunity to improve your career prospects and earning potential with a mix of key skills that are directly transferable to the workplace.

As an MPH graduate, together with your previous experience , knowledge, skills and training, you will be well prepared to enter an array of roles in professions revolving around public health.

Overview

Public health skills and knowledge are fundamental to addressing many of the 21st century's complex health problems and to achieving public health objectives for improving the health of populations, communities and individuals.

This 12-unit course provides students with the full range of quantitative, analytical and communication skills necessary to work in the broad domain of public health. It especially focuses on developing skills in the quantitative methods of the population-based health sciences and their problem-solving application for public health, health care and emerging health issues in Australia, developing countries, and globally.

Our program offers you flexibility, with a range of unit choices and the opportunity to specialise in clinical epidemiology, clinical research, health economics, health services management, international health, public health, occupational and environmental health and research streams.

Undertaking the Master of Public Health at Monash University, a Group of Eight University and one that is ranked in the Top 100 Universities worldwide, will give you the knowledge and skills necessary to work in the broad domain of public health and a postgraduate qualification that is recognised around the world.

Graduate Jeff Davey, former CEO of one of Victoria's largest aged-care, not-for-profit organisations, chose the course because of its reputation and his desire for skills to gather evidence, measure outcomes, evaluate policies and work better with government.

"My experience, particularly within the aged-care sector, is that there are lot of people doing a lot of good things, but much of it is not evidence based. I believe there is a tremendous opportunity for managers and leaders to have a much more rigorous basis for their management and professional practice, and the MPH is a fantastic way to get that."

Undertaking a case study and practical experience can be specifically developed and supported as part of your program, which gives you further opportunity to improve the hands on skills required to work in this growing field of health.

Teaching is structured as a combination of face to face, including block days, teaching and on-line educational delivery, to suit working professionals and those who balance other responsibilities in their lives.

There are also specified exit points for both a Graduate Certificate and Graduate Diploma qualification if you meet the requirements.

Career opportunities

Graduates may move into careers in a diverse range of areas within the public health and wider health sector, or further develop and extend their current working career. These may include professional practice, research, public health management, health care facilities' management, international aid organisation roles and professional roles within developing countries.

The University of Tennessee at Chattanooga (UTC) Master of Public Health (MPH) in Chronic Disease Prevention and Control is a two-year, interdisciplinary program offered through the College of Health, Education and Professional Studies. This unique program is dedicated to educating and training future public health professionals to be leaders and innovators committed to combating chronic diseases through an environment rich in learning, community engagement and service. 

Located in the heart of metropolitan Chattanooga, we are escalating efforts to address the growth of chronic diseases in pursuit of creating a healthier, more vibrant community. We are redefining ways to approach public health issues by working across systems to prevent and mitigate the impact of chronic diseases on our society. Whether in the classroom or in the community, we train professionals to promote healthy lifestyles to individuals in diverse communities locally, nationally and globally.

This is a critical time for public health. We seek compassionate, dedicated, aspiring leaders to fulfill this growing workforce. Are you ready to embark on a satisfying and impactful career in public health?

Mission

We seek to engage students in applied, integrated experiences that equip them to take an active role in providing public health leadership within the communities they serve. As a program, we strive to promote health equity and reduce health disparities through community-engaged experiences and collaborative, interdisciplinary approaches with the ultimate goal of preventing premature disability and death from chronic diseases. 

Vision

Equipping public health leaders to prevent chronic disease through the promotion of healthy lifestyles and healthy communities.

Program Overview

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), chronic diseases, such as heart disease, diabetes and cancer, are now responsible for the greatest proportion of deaths in the United States and globally. In addition to their effect on mortality, chronic diseases have an enormous impact on disability, quality of life, lost productivity and are a major contributor to health disparities. The economic costs of chronic diseases create an enormous burden on individuals, the communities they live in and our health systems.

The Master of Public Health (MPH) program in Chronic Disease Prevention and Control at the University of Tennessee Chattanooga trains public health practitioners and researchers to serve as leaders in public and private health agencies in the prevention and control of chronic diseases. The program draws upon the strengths of faculty within the College of Health, Education and Professional Studies, as well as leaders across campus including the University of Tennessee Medical College, Nursing, Physical Therapy, Learning and Leadership, Social Work, Business Management, Political Science and Public Service and Psychology. 

Our MPH program in Chronic Disease Prevention and Control integrates a biological, behavioral, and ecological perspective to understand how physical activity, proper nutrition and other health behaviors impact the development of chronic diseases at the community, national, and global level. Our program of study:

  • strategically aligns with the core functions in public health (assessment, policy development, and assurance)
  • provides exposure to conducting essential public health services in a variety of settings,
  • trains students to be innovators, advocates and leaders in addressing problems related to chronic disease,
  • engages students in collaboration with community partners at every step of their training.

A major focus of our MPH program is to connect students to a multitude of experiences working directly with community partners to apply classroom learning in real world settings. Our students are immersed in public health experiences in large health systems, community health centers, parks departments and local non-profit organizations to combat the growth of chronic diseases in urban and rural communities across southeastern Tennessee.

Our Curriculum

The UTC Master in Public Health is a rigorous, professional training program that is a purposeful mix of classroom-based learning and applied field experiences. Our goal is to provide training essential for working in public health and chronic disease prevention settings. Course material is continually reinforced and expanded upon in subsequent classes and applied in different public health settings.

Our core MPH classes are designed as in-person, face-to-face meetings to enhance interactions and sharing of experiences. Students will progress through the program as a cohort to ensure that they receive the highest level of academic and logistical support in graduating in a timely fashion. Students engage in a tight knit, learning community and develop bonds with other cohort members. These relationships serve as the foundation for professional networks that extend beyond the classroom and significantly enhance their future career development and professional advancement. Classes are scheduled in the evening to allow greater flexibility for working professionals. While core classes meet face-to-face, several elective courses are available online to allow for greater flexibility and freedom in designing a customized program of study.

We also consider the unique ethical issues that arise within public health interventions.

As a School we lead high-quality research and practice that advances public health, paying particular attention to the world's poorest populations. The School offers you the opportunity to interact and learn from the expertise of eminent academic staff, specialising in diverse topics.

Academic facilities

As part of the University of London you can also become a member of Senate House Library for free with your student ID card.

Placements

We do not have organised internships or placements as a formal requirement of the programme. We do, however, offer advice on how to secure opportunities and we support you through this experience.

City’s Career Service offers a wide range of support to enhance your employability, including skill-building workshops for resume writing and mock interviews, online job-matching, special events, and alumni networking opportunities, and individual career counselling.

Teaching and learning

You learn through a mix of lectures, class discussions, seminars, presentations, case study analyses, interactive computer-based exercises, a virtual learning environment, guided independent learning and individual supervision.

Lectures are discussion-oriented and there is a lot of group work giving you the opportunity to discuss solutions to problems, or to design a public health programmes drawn from your own experiences. Group presentations also form a significant part of the programme.

In terms of contact hours, for every 15-credit module you study, you will have 30 hours of teaching time and around 120 hours of self-directed/independent study. This means that as a full-time student you will have 3 hours of teaching time and 12 hours of self-directed study for each course each week.

Assessment

You are assessed on a range of areas including your project dissertation, exams, assignments and group work.

Modules

From the basic concepts of epidemiology to the kinds of socio-economic conditions that influence health equality, the programme’s core content gives you a strong foundation in public health theory and research methods.

There are five core modules, two electives (optional) modules and a dissertation. The dissertation gives you an opportunity to design and carry out a major research project on a public health topic of your choice. Many students use the dissertation as an opportunity to apply their learning to a public health issue that is important to them. The full course content represents 180 credits which includes 60 credits for the dissertation. As a part-time student, you will normally take 30 credits per term and as a full-time student, you will take 60 credits per term. Find out about the specific term dates here.

Your programme of study

If you want to influence public health policy, become a researcher, or work in public health, an MPH in Public Health will give you the range of skills and discipline areas you need to cover to work within the discipline. Public Health awareness is never very far from the news when epidemics are reported and contained, diseases become more widespread or there is a link between populations and long term health impacts from specific behaviours displayed individually and in terms of clusters in the economies they represent. It is a fascinating subject area where patterns and trends can be analysed in health outcomes to make a real positive impact on our lives as well as defining longevity and issues impacting health around the world.

You will ideally have a science and health related background degree but other Honours degrees in science, social science and humanities can be considered for the programme which is an Master of Public Health (MPH)

This MPH covers the core topics required for professional accreditation in public health that is relevant to both UK and international students. The programme offers an excellent range of specialist elective options to allow you to tailor your learning to your needs and includes a flexible project component enabling you to gain experience oriented either towards the development of a professional career in public health practice or towards the pursuit of a more academic career.
