Overview

Key facts

The Public Health programme of the 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.

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.
