MSc Public Health - Health Promotion
This course develops the theoretical knowledge and practical skills needed to promote and protect public health and wellbeing. Focusing on the social determinants of health, you will be equipped to fulfill a variety of roles in health promotion and public health, private health services or the voluntary sector.
We focus on how people and communities can empower themselves to improve their health, and how public policy can create healthier societies and places. You will also investigate the psychology of behaviour change, together with how people learn about health. The research strand will enable you to critically appraise evidence and develop research skills.
