Program description

Public Health - MSc (Full-time)

The Public Health MSc focuses on wider determinants of health and wellbeing, and is ideal for anyone interested in working to improve population health and health promotion, whether within the NHS, community organisations, government or related agencies. Based on the view that public health strategies reach far beyond the healthcare system, it provides a comprehensive coverage of the twenty-first century complexities of both national and international public health.

The course will develop your critical understanding of the impact of social determinants of health on populations and the range of political, social, economic, environmental and health interventions that might improve population health.

You’ll evaluate key principles and concepts that underpin public health developments and interprets evidence crucial for decision-making and problem-solving in public health policy and practice. You’ll also understand the ethical dimensions of public health and develop critical reflective abilities and moral responsibility for population health.

Admission requirements

You will be required to have:

  • at least an upper second class (2:2) honours degree in a relevant subject or related area (those with relevant professional or technical qualifications or extensive professional experience will also be considered)
