Course content

Summary

The course will be of interest to a wide range of professionals such as managers, health education/health promotion specialists, environmental health officers, doctors, nurses, specialist community public health nurses, allied health professionals, dentists and teachers working in health and social care, local government, education, the voluntary and private sectors, as well as new graduates who are contemplating a career within the expanding field of health promotion and public health.

The course aims to develop analytical, communication, leadership and management skills necessary to operate at a professional level. These will prepare and enable practitioners to develop and lead population-based activities designed to tackle inequalities in health, prevent ill health and to work in partnership with individuals, families, communities and multidisciplinary public health workforces.

About

This intellectually stimulating course is based on the physical and mental dimensions of health and the associated social, political, economic and personal determinants of health. The course is designed to provide an advanced education in the theory, principles and practice of health promotion and public health, with strong emphasis on the integration of theory into practical application.

The curriculum takes account of newly emerging needs in public health practice and policy. It has been developed with a strong focus on evidence based practice to enable students to develop key health promotion and public health competencies within a supportive learning environment.

A work-based learning module requires you to spend a minimum of 35 hours in a public health setting which will afford you the opportunity to understand and observe the competencies necessary to work within the field of public health. The module also aims to consolidate your learning by drawing on the knowledge and skills acquired throughout the course, and, thus, increase employment prospects.

The MSc Research Project is a substantial piece of independent work where, through the application of the research process to a self-determined public health topic area, you will demonstrate your ability to complete an evidence based project which makes a contribution to the knowledge base for professional practice and/or policy.

Full-time and part-time study options provide flexibility to structure study to suit personal and professional commitments.

Work placement / study abroad

You are required to spend a minimum of 35 hours in a public health setting. You will be provided with a range of organisations who have agreed to facilitate placement. You may also, with approval, organise a placement in another organisation of your choice.

Career options

Health promotion and public health are no longer viewed as the responsibility of only those working in health. Students have obtained employment in statutory, voluntary, charity, private and community organisations as well as in local government and academic institutions. Students have also progressed to further postgraduate study.
