About the course

Course description

Accredited by the Agency for Public Health Education Accreditation

We are encountering new challenges in public health – for example, the obesity crisis – that means the focus of public health bodies is shifting away from traditional communicable diseases. With new public health challenges come more opportunities to improve population-level health.

This public health course covers the broad range of knowledge and skills required for public health practice around the world. You’ll explore how public health principles apply to professional practice and how research processes apply to public health. Your understanding of public health approaches will be increased, as will your knowledge of health service organisations, management and economics.

Student Profile(s)

Nafiseh Aryan

I will apply for job in this country or maybe go back to Iran to get a better position with a higher salary. This degree is quite valuable in Iran as well as in any other countries.

Harriet Fidler

I love the University and Sheffield as a city. I did my undergraduate degree here and didn’t want to leave. Whilst what I learnt was related to public health, such as disease outbreak management, the problem solving skills can be applied to other areas in the future.
