About

Public Health offered by Plymouth Marjon University is an interdisciplinary area which aims to prevent disease, prolong life and promote health. It addresses broad issues that can affect the health and well-being of individuals, families, communities, populations, and societies. 

Overview

Course Overview

The Public Health offered by Plymouth Marjon University is a ‘specialised’ Master’s Degree in that it has academic and professional elements, taking an interdisciplinary approach to areas related to public health. Students are taught how to monitor, diagnose and regulate the health concerns of communities through public policies’.

The programme is both for students who want to enter the field of public health and for those already working as a health professional who want to progress their career. There will be opportunities to engage with employers and real-world projects and for those already in employment there will be  opportunities to network and develop their understanding and competences.

The intention is to run the full-time programme on 3 days of the week and part-time route on one day a week. We are seeking accreditation from APHEA and for CPD accreditated modules from the government's Faculty of Public Health.

What might you become?

Graduates will be well placed to apply for public health roles in local or national government health departments. The range of jobs varies widely, and can include epidemiology, environmental health, health education, health promotion, health policy development, research and health advocacy.

While studying students on this course can apply for student membership with The Royal Society of Public Health and upon completion of the course students will be eligible to apply for a fellowship membership.
