This MSc prepares you to start or develop your career in public health research or practice. It gives you a firm grounding in the three key areas of public health - public health improvement, health protection and healthcare public health – and is underpinned by our expertise in research methods, statistics and epidemiology.
The programme is structured around nine taught units and a research dissertation.
Your research dissertation will give you the opportunity to explore an area of public health in depth.
Examples of possible dissertation topics are:
