Summary

This programme covers the whole breadth of public health, encompassing low-, middle- and high-income countries. It reflects local, national and international public health agendas, and provides the opportunity to explore public health issues in depth with academics, researchers and practitioners. After a series of compulsory core modules, you will be able to focus on a specialised stream of study, including the option to follow a general public health programme.

This stream provides training in the advanced methods necessary to undertake epidemiological research on the relationships between health and the environment. You will develop an understanding of the social, economic and political contexts which underlie the selection and evaluation of policy responses. Graduates enter careers in epidemiology, health risk assessment, consultancy or policy development as applied to environment and health.
