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.
- Public Health at Worcester is relevant to both the 'traditional' public health workforce and a wide range of 'allied' professionals seeking to enhance their ability.
- 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?
The course content is aligned with the guidelines for accreditation at the International level (W.H.O) European level (The European Agency for Accreditation in Public Health Education, APHEA) and the National level (The Faculty of Public Health and the UK Public Health Register). The course is aimed at the wider public health workforce and therefore the range of public health career opportunities is very diverse and will depend on whether you want to work for a local, national or international organisation.
Career opportunities include local, national and international NGOs, government health departments including the NHS, local authorities and policy departments at national government level, the World Health Organisation and the United Nations, and other private sector and third sector organisations.
