The MSc Public Health creates professionals who can lead and implement change in public health across the world stage.
The MSc Public Health was designed in consultation with Public Health Wales and supports the development of public health practitioners through enabling them to negotiate, plan, implement and evaluate policy and practice initiatives.

The course curriculum is underpinned by standards set by the UK Public Health Skills and Career Framework, Faculty of Public Health and the National Occupational Standards for Public Health.
