Summary

This programme provides the knowledge and skills to address diverse public health issues in low-, middle- and high-income environments. The curriculum allows you to opt for a broad range of knowledge by taking the general pathway or specialise in one of three streams: Environment and Health, Health Promotion or Health Services Management.
