Why Study Doctor of Public Health with us?

Our Doctor of Public Health (DrPH) course takes an innovative multidisciplinary approach, drawing upon international experts in health economics, health protection, communicable disease, epidemiology, social justice, health promotion, biostatistics, and health and social policy.

The course was developed to provide you with the cutting-edge research experience, knowledge and skills to enable you to undertake strategic leadership in public health. Its central aims are to foster an integrated understanding of health and social policies, the systems that create and sustain the uneven distribution of determinants of health, and the critical application of social justice principles to current public health issues.

What will I learn?

The modules can be considered as two strands: public health principles and practice development, and research. Cross-cutting themes throughout this course are ethics, philosophy and practice.

How will I be taught?

You will be supported and challenged to further develop these learning skills through the teaching methods employed by the programme team. The details of these methods differ according to the context of individual modules, but they share the aim of ensuring active learning.

There are 30 hours of contact time and 600 hours of private study/ independent learning per module.

How will I be assessed?

The DrPH will enable you to critically and reflectively engage with the principles of public health within your own practice.
