Program Description

Public health is the science and art of detecting and preventing disease, enhancing people’s quality of life, and promoting physical, mental, and environmental health amongst populations so people can live healthier, for longer.

This course aims to provide you with the knowledge and skills on the vital role that Public Health plays in society across three pillars of public health – prevention, protection, and promotion.

The curriculum explores strategies for tackling disease and preventing ill-health, embracing multifaceted and collective actions for health promotion, and approaches to health protection to respond to emerging challenges facing public health practitioners.

You will be taught using a mixture of lectures and small-group seminars, ‘hands-on’ skills workshops, student-led discussions and interactive simulation. This combination of teaching aims to support you to explore important health issues theoretically as well as practically. We aim to create confident, knowledgeable Public Health graduates who are ready to make meaningful change in population health locally, nationally and internationally.

Upon successful completion of this course you will have developed an understanding of health disparities and health inequalities at local, national and international levels have the knowledge to improve health outcomes through the effective planning, execution and evaluation of health interventions to change behaviour.
