We've been helping students find the right postgraduate course for over a decade.
The Department brings together specialists in the areas of public health, environmental health, social work, sociology, criminology and social policy and disciplines such as biological sciences, epidemiology, health economics and sociology that make an important contribution to these areas of work and help you to get on in life, not just in your course.
Staff are engaged in research and consultancy across a wide range of activity, for example: Older People, Education, Research and Development, Children and Young People, Offender Health Work, Leadership and Management, Arts and Health, Clinical Research, and User Involvement. Interprofessional, multidisciplinary and international approaches are now major dimensions to much of our work.
