Course Summary

Course overview

A master’s degree in public health helps you develop the advanced critical thinking, administrative and problem solving skills you need to prepare you to lead public health teams, initiatives and research in the UK and internationally.

You apply contemporary public health theory to practice, developing a critical understanding of complex global public health issues, and translate theoretical scientific knowledge in public health into tangible sustainable interventions for improved health.

Our master’s degrees are developed in line with the Public Health Skills and Knowledge Framework (2018), the Faculty of Public Health core competencies (2014) and the United Nations sustainable development goals (2016).

The course is offered as a one-year full-time intensive course (Master of Public Health), or as a two-year full-time course which includes applied practice.

The one-year course is a great option if you want to gain a traditional Master’s qualification, graduate and start on your career path within 12 months, or if you want a stepping stone to gain entry onto the Doctor of Public.

The two-year course enhances your qualification by adding a vocational or research based internship to the one-year master’s programme. A vocational internship is a great way to gain work experience and give your CV a competitive edge. A research internship provides you with the opportunity to develop your analytical, team-working, research and academic skills by working alongside a research team in an academic setting. We guarantee a research internship, but cannot guarantee a vocational internship. We will provide you with practical support and advice on how to find and secure your own vocational internship position should you prefer this type of internship.

How you are assessed

You are assessed through a range of methods to provide a variety of learning experiences and to challenge and extend your knowledge. These include written reports and essays, defended poster, case study, research proposals, and a dissertation. You are given written feedback on all assignments to outline your progress and encourage further development.

Career opportunities

After completing the course, potential career opportunities may include:

  • a variety of roles in a contemporary public health workforce
  • public health research
  • a professional development role.

Modules
