This Public Health programme offered at the University of Sunderland mixes taught elements with independent projects. We support you with guidance and inspiration, and you will negotiate a final project that matches your personal interests. You will analyse the global and national policy, and its practical implications, and have an opportunity to study an area of healthcare in depth.
Public health covers three key domains: Health improvement, which includes monitoring specific diseases, risk factors and inequalities; Improving services, which includes audit, evaluation, service planning and efficiency; Health protection, which includes responses to infectious diseases and environmental hazards.
- The Institute of Health Sciences and Wellbeing aims to conduct world-leading research that leads to better physical and mental health for all
- As our lecturers continue to work in public health, you will learn from their up-to-date knowledge and practice
The increased emphasis on wellness is leading to new types of employment in helping people live longer, healthier and more fulfilling lives. On completing this course you will be equipped with the skills and knowledge to work at an advanced level in line with current health legislation and policy.
Public Health professionals work in a range of community health areas such as primary health care teams, public health units, drug and alcohol settings, and health and social care settings. There are also opportunities in epidemiology, biostatistics, environmental health, health administration, health education and health policy.
