Course Summary

This programme aims to equip students with the knowledge and skills to enable them to address public health challenges through research and practice. It covers the whole breadth of public health, encompassing low-, middle- and high-income countries. It reflects local, national and international public health agendas, and provides the opportunity to explore public health issues in depth with academics, researchers and practitioners. After a series of compulsory core modules, students will be able to focus on a specialised stream of study, including the option to follow a general public health programme. On successful completion of the programme, students will receive a Master's degree in Public Health. The decision about which stream to follow will depend on each student's needs and can be discussed with tutors and the programme directors, with the final choice being made during Term 1. In addition to compulsory stream-specific modules, students will be able to choose modules from a wide selection covering all aspects of public health. Graduates from this programme enter a diverse range of positions in public health, research, NGOs, health programmes, health services, government, policy and planning.
