One of only a handful of courses in the UK, Public Health (Addictions) turns its back on the treatment of addiction as a behaviour and looks at its wider social and political aspects. The issues relating to addiction continue to be major public health challenges facing communities around the world, with wide ranging consequences for the individual concerned, their families and society as a whole.
This MSc in Public Health (Addiction) at Liverpool John Moores University builds on the Public Health Institute's extensive research portfolio of primary research, evaluation, evidence review and intelligence systems, covering the areas of drugs, alcohol and tobacco. Students come from a wide range of backgrounds including nursing, psychology and criminology, many have also worked in drug or alcohol support capacities.
This education programme enables you to work with leading academics in the field, providing specialist knowledge and insights into a wide range of addiction issues. Additionally, the Public Health Institute is able to call on the experience of an established network of practitioners and policy makers to make a unique educational experience.
As a graduate of this course you will probably go on to work in areas improving the health and wellbeing of individuals, communities and populations, taking up a role in the voluntary or private sectors.
Many Public Health graduates go on to work in the NHS or for local authorities. You may, however, choose to advance your research career or undertake further study to PhD level.
