Course Summary

Our MSD in Public Health offers you a unique opportunity to undertake research in a variety of public health contexts e.g. schools, hospitals and community settings. You will be offered opportunities to access our Masters level research methods modules to provide a sound foundation of specific research knowledge and skills. In addition, you will have access to the University’s Proficio research training scheme which allows you to choose training programmes that meet the requirements of your own research topics and methodologies.

This MSD is offered on a 1 year full-time or 2 year part-time basis. Some people choose to do an MSD before applying to undertake a PhD in order to develop their research skills and knowledge and to demonstrate their self-discipline and time management skills to potential supervisors or funders.
