Public Health is about preventing disease, prolonging life and promoting health through the efforts of society.
This programme is taught on-campus, but we also offer a part-time MPH by online distance learning which may suit those who wish to continue working while studying, or who are unable to come to Edinburgh.
You will gain an understanding of how different scientific disciplines can be used to investigate and then develop the best professional practice in epidemiology, public health and social science, ethics and health.
This Public Health programme at The University of Edinburgh is affiliated with the University's Global Health Academy.
The programme will prepare you for a career in research or academia, professional public-health service, clinical epidemiology, health technology assessment, public-health protection and a wide range of national and international organisations concerned with preventing disease and improving the health of populations.
