Course Summary

Course overview

Health and wellbeing is a rapidly changing and challenging area - both nationally and internationally.

This programme is a distance-learning course delivered online.

This course aims to equip future senior leaders and strategic thinkers in health and wellbeing with the knowledge, skills and expertise to enable them to take a leading role in responding to these complex issues.

About this course

This course offers a full or part-time route to develop understanding, knowledge and expertise across a broad range of health and wellbeing subjects including mental health, weight management, the healthy environment, workplace wellbeing, healthy ageing, and contemporary issues.

The course considers national and international trends and challenges in enabling sustainable population health and wellbeing, alongside developing students’ academic and professional skills to support both future career advancement and further research.

Health and wellbeing practitioners work alongside active researchers and experienced lecturers to help you follow your passion for improving the health and wellbeing of others. You will develop the skills and knowledge to understand the bigger picture in health and wellbeing strategy, policy and intervention planning, as well as focusing on the challenges to maintaining health and wellbeing for marginalised groups.

Inequalities in health and wellbeing persist despite action being taken at multiple levels. You will develop the ability to analyse the complexity of responding to diverse needs, and develop solutions that are grounded in theory, based in evidence and are pragmatic and workable. This will enhance your employment prospects as you will be building your own problem-solving expertise within this field.

By the time you graduate, you will be able to apply your expertise and demonstrate that you are able to become a leader in this area going forwards and/or progress on to doctoral-level study.

Learning and teaching

At Leeds Trinity we aim to provide an excellent student experience and provide you with the tools and support to help you achieve your academic, personal and professional potential.

Our Learning, Teaching and Assessment Strategy delivers excellence by providing the framework for:

  • high-quality teaching
  • an engaging and inclusive approach to learning, assessment and achievement
  • a clear structure through which you progress in your academic studies, your personal development and towards professional-level employment or further study.

Assessment

We use a range of assessment methods across the course, in recognition that communication in the arena of health and wellbeing needs to be diverse in order to reach diverse audiences.

These include developing academic and practitioner posters and development plans. You'll also be assessed by writing journal articles, delivering video presentations, writing extended essays and critical literature reviews.

We don’t use exams as a form of assessment but our assessment methods do challenge you to extend your range of communication skills, preparing you well for career advancement.

Modules

You will study four modules, followed by an independently studied MSc dissertation or an alternative work-based project. This will include two core modules along with two modules, from a choice of six options. For the option breakdown, visit our website.

Modules

The workplace is increasingly being positioned as central to managing the health of the working age population. In this module, you will explore the reasons why the workplace has moved more to centre stage, and will develop the knowledge and skills to be able to create a business case for a workplace wellbeing intervention.
