Summary

This MSc will prepare you for a public health career in settings such as health services, government, research and the not-for-profit sector. You will gain core skills and knowledge that are applicable for public health work in the UK and internationally. These include critically appraising evidence, analysing and interpreting data, research methods, and applying methods to protect health, prevent ill-health and improve health services. The programme is suitable for students from clinical and non-clinical backgrounds.

The MSc covers the principles and practice of public health, health improvement, health protection, epidemiology and statistics, research methods and evaluation, health economics, ethics and healthcare services. You will learn from public health professionals, including colleagues from Public Health England, including colleagues from UK Health Security Agency local government and the National Health Service, in addition to research-led teaching from multidisciplinary academic experts.

Your dissertation - which can be based on either the ALSPAC cohort, a literature review, qualitative data or your own research topic - will take the form of a journal article and opens the possibility of publication. The programme covers many parts of the Faculty of Public Health's Diplomate Exam.
