Course content

Public health covers three key domains. The first is health improvement, which includes monitoring specific diseases, risk factors and inequalities. The second is improving services, which includes audit, evaluation, service planning and efficiency. The third domain is health protection, which includes responses to infectious diseases and environmental hazards.

Public health professionals often work alongside colleagues in other disciplines. Consistent with this, Sunderland has created an environment that encourages interdisciplinary learning. We also help you develop the advanced skills in communication, reflective practice and group working that underpin professional success.

During the course you will analyse the government's agenda and its practical implications for community health. Additionally, you will have an opportunity to study an area of health care in depth, through a project.
