In modern times public health interventions have consistently made major contributions to social progress, yet at the start of the 21st century familiar public health problems still persist and new challenges are emerging.

About

The MSc Public Health at the University of Worcester is a postgraduate programme for health practitioners and professionals from the wider workforce who impact on public health. The course will develop your public health skills and establish an advanced knowledge base for your chosen field of public health practice, whether in the UK or internationally. Public Health requires an interdisciplinary approach to the analysis of health problems and the professional practice needed to address them, and meeting the new complex health problems of the 21st Century requires integration of thinking and practice across many disciplines.

Public Health at the University of Worcester is therefore an exciting progressive course that is relevant to both the ‘traditional’ public health workforce and a wide range of ‘allied’ professionals seeking to enhance their ability to impact on the public’s health. The course is structured so that applicants from diverse backgrounds have the opportunity to gain a sound foundational knowledge base in contemporary public health practice that is of equal relevance to your career progress, whether in the NHS, internationally, in private health care organisations, in allied health sciences, or in third sector organisations. Having established this foundational knowledge, students can select option modules in order to maintain a broad based approach to public health, or choose options in a way that enables them to pursue more focussed interests in UK practice, international public health or health and sustainability.
