Course content

Public Health is about preventing disease, prolonging life and promoting health through the efforts of society.

This is the ideal programme if you are a professional or new to the subject and you wish to address today’s problems in public health.

This programme is taught on-campus, but we also offer a part-time MPH by online distance learning which may suit those who wish to continue working while studying, or who are unable to come to Edinburgh.

You will gain an understanding of how different scientific disciplines can be used to investigate and then develop the best professional practice in epidemiology, public health and social science, ethics and health.

This programme is affiliated with the University's Global Health Academy.
