October 2023


This course encompasses both prevention and promotion, and recognises the importance of social determinants of health. 

The MSc Public Health and Health Promotion programme supports students to develop the skills required to address existing and emerging public health challenges locally, nationally and internationally. It will also provide a professional qualification that will develop understanding of this complex field. Students will strengthen, enhance and improve their career prospects, and be empowered to make a valuable contribution to improving health and wellbeing.

During the MSc, students will be introduced to the underpinning principles and concepts of public health and health promotion in different settings, and examine the impact of health inequalities on population health, engage with the principles, methods and application of epidemiology and the planning and evaluation of public health programmes. In the final stage of study, MSc students will undertake a self-directed, supervised, research project relevant to public health and health promotion.
