Course Summary

This new online degree aims to turn you into a leader in this field. You will have the chance to learn from Imperial experts who are shaping global health policy. This includes researchers who led the most recent fight against the Ebola epidemic, described as the largest, most severe and most complex in the nearly four-decade history of the disease.

As a university ranked in the global top ten, we offer a curriculum that is rooted in evidence-based research skills. It’s a style of learning that relies on learning by discovery, rather than simply memorising facts. The result is graduates who are equipped with knowledge and a transferable set of skills to be able to make a unique contribution in protecting and improving public health.

This course is aimed at students from a variety of different backgrounds in medicine, health policy, academic research and others. They may represent different professional backgrounds but there is one common thread: The calling to help make the world healthier and safer for all.

This allows you to develop your knowledge and skills with further choices and specialised subjects within public health, directed towards your own public health practice and research. You will complete core specialisations, choosing a further two optional specialisations. You will undertake a Research Portfolio specialisation providing you with a foundational understanding of research practice.

Statistics for Public Health - Core
Health Systems Development - Core
Global Diseases Masterclass - Core
