About

The MSc Public Health from University of South Wales creates professionals who can lead and implement change in public health across the world stage.

Visit the official programme website for more information

Overview

It was designed in consultation with Public Health Wales and supports the development of public health practitioners through enabling them to negotiate, plan, implement and evaluate policy and practice initiatives. 

The Public Health programme from University of South Wales recognises that health challenges can be more global than a single country’s population but that local policy and regulation responses will vary from country to country. 

Modules include relevant theoretical and ethical concepts to encourage students to reflect critically on questions and decisions that arise in the field of public health.

At the end of the course, students will develop as responsive professionals who can negotiate, plan, implement and evaluate public health policy and practice.

Career

This Public Health course opens up a variety of employment opportunities in the UK and internationally, and across the public and voluntary sectors, e.g, in schools, colleges and universities, advocacy organisations, international non-government organisations, consulting firms, local and national government organisations, health delivery organisations and community development organisations.

There is also opportunity to work in global organisations such as the World Health Organisation.

Please note, the MSc Public Health does not lead to registration on any professional register but can contribute towards preparation for Part A of the Faculty of Public Health examinations.
