The complexity and continually changing nature of both national and global public health requires us to understand and devise new and innovative approaches to current and predicted realities. If you work in the health sector, you may not have considered the impact of the social determinants of health on the population. Our course will help you look at critically evaluating and implementing practical public health solutions, tailoring them to the environment in which you work.
Our part time course allows you to learn while you earn, fitting your studies around your work through usage of online resources. We welcome students from all types of backgrounds, including the voluntary and public sectors as well as health and social care related professionals. Open up new levels of employment and advance your professional development further!
Unlike many public health courses, our programme specifically embraces the social determinants of health and mobilisation for social change. It instils a perspective of health that embraces all aspects of the human experience and places health fully in the dynamic interplay of social structures. Our primary focus will be on social inequality, economic and environmental change, political challenges, migration and human rights.
The flexibility of the online course allows you to study at your own pace, working around your work and other commitments. We promote an evidence based approach that brings together the points of view of all relevant factors, bringing the potential to improve local practices.
This course can enhance your employment potential in your current workplace or help you to branch out in a different direction relating to public health. You may also be able to continue studying for a PhD.
Students will need to demonstrate an interest in health and or social care or global studies. Students who study online must confirm with the Course Leader that they have reliable access to essential equipment, software and internet services before commencing a programme of study. Students will need to demonstrate a level of ICT skills sufficient to enable them to access, navigate contribute to online activities. Details of basic hardware and software requirements are available from the course leader at enrolment.
