By choosing to study a general public health course or to concentrate on one of four specific streams, you will emerge with the ability to apply the core disciplines of public health to real-world health problems.
The Public Health programme from University of London will be relevant for those wishing to increase their potential for career development in public health at a community, hospital or district level, in research, in ministries of health or other health or development related organisations.
"The MSc in Public Health got me into the habit of approaching any problem from a wider angle. I now always look for all possible influence factors. Public health requires critical thinking to identify the core problems and creativity across all disciplines to solve them. And that is useful everywhere."
Dr Sven Jungmann, Germany
