Course content

This course is for professionals from clinical and non-clinical backgrounds who aspire to solve public health problems. Students often want to move into a leadership or management role and find the content – which covers everything from planning evaluation studies to designing a public health programme – comprehensive and relevant.

The Masters in Public Health programme will equip you with skills in research methods and theoretical knowledge in public health sciences, which you will need to lead and evaluate public health programmes.

Our approach is non-clinical and informed by evidence-based practice. We explore how public health is mapped and measured, and use case studies to unpick how socio-economic and political forces influence the public health agenda. We also consider the unique ethical issues that arise within public health interventions.

As a School we lead high-quality research and practice that advances public health, paying particular attention to the world's poorest populations. The School offers you the opportunity to interact and learn from the expertise of eminent academic staff, specialising in diverse topics.
