Course content

Become a leader in public health on this dynamic Masters in Public Health (MPH) programme and make a positive change in the world.

The Masters in Public Health at City is ideal for those who aspire to address contemporary health challenges at local, national and international levels. The course is global, interdisciplinary, and has a distinct focus on social, political and economic determinants of health, including mental health. By joining us on the Masters in Public Health at City you will gain cutting edge knowledge on evidence-based practice and research for leading public health initiatives.

The MPH is the most widely recognised professional qualification for leadership in public health, and this course is perfect for those who have experience of working within or using health systems, from both clinical and non-clinical backgrounds.

The Masters in Public Health programme is interdisciplinary and informed by evidence-based practice, meaning you will learn about the theory and practice of public health, using case studies from all over the world.

Our international case studies cover a wide range of health challenges (including mental health, wellbeing and non-communicable diseases) to explore how public health is mapped and measured; to unpick how socio-economic and political forces shape public health around the world; and to delve into the unique ethical issues posed by public health interventions. In doing this, the Masters in Public Health will give you what you need to lead and evaluate public health programmes.
