Course content

Public health reaches beyond local and national dimensions, people and communities across the world require global solutions.

The core concept underpinning this Global Public Health course is the examination, analysis and reflection upon complex health determinants in an increasingly globalised world. You will explore the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and public health challenges contributing towards global inequalities. The central aspects of the course include creating an environment for interdisciplinary and interprofessional learning through embedding research and scholarship within the course, enhancing engagement with public health and wider health industry stakeholders and integrating the development of employability skills throughout. The course will use traditional face-to-face learning, combined with an innovative blended learning approach which will support you within a flexible learning environment.
The course will provide you with:
  • comprehensive knowledge, understanding and skills to become an effective global health practitioner to pursue your career in public health practice and research at local, national and international levels
  • the support to develop competencies to work in global public health and health service delivery within the NHS, local government, private and charity organisations, international development sector, academia and the wider health and wellbeing economy
  • opportunities to engage with national and international stakeholders within the School and beyond through academic input, knowledge exchange, implementation and research activities
  • the support to explore and find opportunities for paid or unpaid work, which could be aligned with the work-based learning module on the programme;
  • an interdisciplinary learning environment by bringing together graduates from other disciplines and experts from different fields of study and practice
  • opportunities for flexible learning through full-time or part-time study, morning and/or afternoon taught sessions, and face-to-face and blended learning approach.
