The Health Promotion and Education MSc critically explores the health issues and promotion needs of a diverse range of communities in the UK and globally.
The course will benefit you if you are working in education, or have some experience of this, and want to enhance your health promotion and teaching practice. It gives you the opportunity to earn a postgraduate degree and improve your practice for personal or professional development.
The course has been designed to equip participants with skills to meet the internationally recognised core competencies in health promotion (Galway Consensus statement of 2011 http://www.iuhpe.org) and relevant components of the UK National Occupational Standards for the Practice of Public Health.
Masters graduates with appropriate work experience are entitled to apply for membership of the voluntary UK Public Health Register.
