Overview

At the Public Health programme of University of Worcester the philosophy is to create and develop professionals who are able to lead and implement change in public health globally. To fulfil this aim, the modules include relevant theoretical and ethical concepts to encourage students to reflect critically on decisions that arise in the field of public health.

  • Applicants from diverse backgrounds gain knowledge in a wide range of contemporary public health practices including the NHS, private health care, allied health sciences and third sector organisations.
  • The variety of modules on offer, enable students to choose either a broad based approach to public health, or to focus on UK practice, international public health or health and sustainability.

Where could it take you?
