Course content

The Master of Public Health (MPH) is aimed at those who wish to develop their careers in the broad field of public health. It will also benefit those who wish to improve their ability to promote the health of the public as part of their current professional role. The programme offers an opportunity to develop postgraduate research and enquiry skills, and develop a critical understanding of their application in a public health employment context. The students on this programme come from a variety of public health backgrounds and from countries other than the UK. Therefore students will have the opportunity to undertake some collaborative learning with students from countries across the world.
