From SARS and Ebola to health inequalities or the debate about how to structure health services, public health is constantly in the news. This course will equip you to meet the challenges of a dynamic and exciting field. Whether you’re currently working in a public health-related role already or are eager to enter the field, you’ll find a wealth of experience and ideas that you will explore along with a diverse cohort of students under the guidance of our expert tutors and researchers. Our course takes a modern approach to public health, by directly addressing the social, economic and political factors that influence population health and well-being. Your programme will culminate in planning, researching and writing your Masters project. This can be research or work-based, focusing on your areas of particular interest. Whether you want to work in local public services or for a global non-governmental organisation, we’ll provide you with valuable knowledge and skills. In fact this is ideal academic and career development for anyone in any capacity where public health and well-being is a consideration. With our international student base, you will also learn about the health priorities across the globe, and you will be encouraged to participate in activities with our Public Health Students’ Association.
