The Master of Public Health (MPH) is aimed at those who wish to develop their careers in the broad field of public health. It will also benefit those who wish to improve their ability to promote the health of the public as part of their current professional role.
The course offers an opportunity to develop postgraduate research and enquiry skills, and develop a critical understanding of their application in a public health employment context. The students on this course come from a variety of public health backgrounds and from countries other than the UK. Therefore students will have the opportunity to undertake some collaborative learning with students from countries across the world.
Students will be encouraged to reflect on current public health concerns and practice issues in the light of new learning and to apply this new learning to their current or future workplace or practice.
The teaching and learning strategies used on the course will be creative and varied. Students will experience lectures, seminars, group work case studies, enquiry based learning exercises, skills development sessions, project-related work (facilitated by group supervision), and directed and independent study. Students will be required to reflect critically on current public health issues in applying their new learning to their own public health role and their workplace.
The assessment methods used in the course will be flexible enough to allow all students, whatever their professional or academic background, to draw on their public health knowledge and experience. The actual assessment formats will vary in order to allow students to fully demonstrate their learning from each module.
Year one will explore research skills, public health fundamentals, leadership and collaborative working in public health, public health intelligence and epidemiology, empirical and practice projects, a systematic appraisal and study dissertation.
