Course Summary

This degree will develop your management competencies and research techniques, equipping you to develop your career as a health professional. Whether you are a podiatrist, a speech therapist or a nurse – if you work in any kind of clinical setting you will reach a point at which you cannot progress without some kind of additional training and demonstrable management competency. The skills you will develop on this course will put you in a good position to progress in your career and take on leadership roles. Whatever sector you are working in – the NHS, private health or social care services, community health organisations or a related commercial sector – you will benefit from studying in a superbly resourced environment which is producing research internationally recognised as being of the highest quality.

This course is designed to give you a systematic understanding of your specialist field of public health, taking in the most up-to-the-minute research. You will gain a comprehensive range of techniques applicable to your own research. You will also gain a practical understanding of how established techniques of research and enquiry are used to create and interpret knowledge, developing a range of transferable skills essential to a career in public health. The course as a whole is based on the principles of the multi-dimensional nature of health.

We consider employability to be a crucial element in the knowledge gained and skills assessed in each module. The course will enable you to deal with complex issues within your workplace and display sound judgment, personal responsibility and initiative. Graduates have returned to careers within NHS or other healthcare sectors with the skills required to take up new levels of responsibility. After completing this course you will be well placed to advance to senior roles, such as director of public health.
