Course content

Belfast is a modern vibrant city offering a great base from which to study a Masters in Public Health. On this MPH programme there is an emphasis on global aspects of public health and emerging threats and challenges and the course attracts students from all over the World. The course equips students with the knowledge and skills base to pursue a career in public health or other health-related leadership roles

One of our strengths is the small class size (typically less than 20 students per year) which enables very close liaison between students and the world class research staff who will be teaching and mentoring students. The emphasis is on learning and transferable skills rather than teaching.

Course Structure

The course is divided into two taught semesters and one research-based component. In the first semester students will be taught by experts in the fields of demography, epidemiology, health economics, medical sociology, health services research, medical statistics and qualitative methods, needs assessment and health impact assessment. There will be an emphasis on critical thinking and of the application of new knowledge.

The second semester focuses on the more applied aspects of public health and this part of the course includes the theory and practice of health promotion; protection of health through control of communicable diseases and environmental hazards and emergency preparedness. The funding, organisation and assessment of health and care systems across the world will also be addressed.

The dissertation makes up the final third of the course. Here students will have an opportunity to undertake substantive research in a public health area of choice and to write and present these findings in a standard format. Students who do not complete the dissertation are eligible for a Diploma in Public Health.
