Course Summary

The MSc Public Health creates professionals who can lead and implement change in public health across the world stage. It was designed in consultation with Public Health Wales and supports the development of public health practitioners through enabling them to negotiate, plan, implement and evaluate policy and practice initiatives. The Public Health Masters recognises that health challenges can be more global than a single country’s population but that local policy and regulation responses will vary from country to country. Modules include relevant theoretical and ethical concepts to encourage students to reflect critically on questions and decisions that arise in the field of public health. At the end of the course, students will develop as responsive professionals, who can negotiate, plan, implement and evaluate public health policy and practice. This Public Health course opens up a variety of employment opportunities in the UK and internationally, and across the public and voluntary sectors, e.g., in schools, colleges and universities, advocacy organizations, international non-government organizations, consulting firms, local and national government organizations, health delivery organizations and community development organizations. There is also opportunity to work in global organizations such as the World Health Organisation.
