Course content

The Master of Public Health (MPH) is a specialised Master’s Degree in that it has academic and professional elements, taking an interdisciplinary approach to areas related to public health. Students are taught how to monitor, diagnose and regulate the health concerns of communities through public policies’.

Public Health is an interdisciplinary area which aims to prevent disease, prolong life and promote health. It addresses broad issues that can affect the health and well-being of individuals, families, communities, populations, and societies. This masters level programme is aimed at graduates and professionals from a range of backgrounds and will develop your knowledge, skills and capabilities in key areas such as health surveillance, intervention, leadership and policy development.

The programme is both for students who want to enter the field of public health and for those already working as a health professional who want to progress their career. There will be opportunities to engage with employers and real-world projects and for those already in employment there will be opportunities to network and develop their understanding and competences.

The intention is to run the full-time programme on 3 days of the week and part-time route on one day a week. We are seeking accrediation from APHEA and for CPD accrediated modules from the government's Faculty of Public Health. This is a new course starting in 2017 and is currently subject to validation.
