The MSc Public Health is a challenging and rewarding programme designed to provide a comprehensive introduction to public health for students who intend to pursue careers in public health practice, management and/or research at local, national and/or supranational levels.
The core focus of the programme is on improving the health and wellbeing of populations, preventing health problems before they occur and reducing inequalities in health. It offers a cutting-edge knowledge and skills base in the principles and methods of public health and a creative and supportive learning environment. It explores a broad range of contemporary public health issues, supported by leading experts in the field of public health as well as the experiences of other students sharing diverse experiences from a range of public health systems around the world.
This programme is composed of nine mandatory modules and is designed as a progressive process where the modules collectively work together to provide the knowledge, skills and understanding required by the modern public health practitioner, whether that be as an epidemiologist, health promoter, leader or researcher.
