Is this course right for you?

This course is ideal for individuals who

  • work or plan to work in public health and related fields
  • have a particular interest in global public health issues
  • have the required basic academic skills (a good level of mathematical ability is needed to undertake this programme)
  • are keen to study public health with students with diverse backgrounds and experiences

How the course works

The course is modular and can be studied over one year full-time or two years part-time.

The course has three main components:

  • Core modules relating to essential public health disciplines
  • Optional modules, allowing you to explore your individual interests
  • A dissertation, integrating the knowledge and skills gained throughout the course

What will you learn?

Through our comprehensive set of core modules you will gain skills that are transferable to public health practice in all contexts, and particularly in international settings. This includes skills in epidemiology, statistics, health economics, critical appraisal, health protection, sociology, health promotion, and applied public health techniques such as health needs assessment.

Optional modules will offer the opportunity to gain more in depth skills in subjects of particular interest to you, including qualitative research methods and health data management.

The final dissertation will provide the opportunity to carry out an extended piece of research to address a real public health problem, integrating the skills gained throughout the course and well-supported by experienced researchers.

You will gain skills that are highly valued by a range of employers, including national health services, governmental and non-governmental organisations, academic institutions and industry.
