Programa académico

The course is made up of seven compulsory modules: Environmental and Public Health, Applied Epidemiology, Policy and Public Health Strategy, Health Economics, Health Promotion and Health Development, Challenges in Global Public Health, and Research Methods, which will include your dissertation.

You'll learn how people's health can be affected by their cultural, social and economic circumstances, lifestyle, emotions and environment. This course focuses on epidemiology and statistics, helping you to build strong foundations on public health monitoring and surveillance. You'll also cover methods of controlling disease and promoting health, including public health campaigns, and measures such as the index of deprivation, life expectancy and population pyramids. The course also deals with the economic, legal and ethical aspects of public health, the National Occupational Standards and the national agenda, health inequalities and global public health, including the role of governments and NGOs and their response to emergencies.

You'll develop the ability to analyse public health data and design, develop, implement and evaluate public health interventions and policy. You'll do a lot of problem solving work in teams and will be expected to act as team leader. You'll learn about different methods of public health research and how to collect, evaluate, interpret and communicate data on the health and wellbeing of a population, as well as socioeconomic, environmental and demographic data.

For your research project, you'll plan, carry out, evaluate and present the results of your own independent investigation into a topical issue in public health. The project must involve original research, but it can take any form, from an empirical or theoretical study to field based research. You will work under the guidance of a supervisor whose expertise and interest is in, or closely related to, the area you're investigating. You can expect to spend between 500 and 600 hours on your project, and will present your results through a 12,000 word thesis and a 20 minute presentation.

The research methodology module will cover experimental design, quantitative and qualitative analysis, and management, presentation and computing skills. You'll learn to evaluate different research techniques, search for and review relevant literature, come up with a research proposal, and analyse and present data.

If you do not wish to study the full MSc, there's the option of a PgDip (you don't study the Research Methods module and the dissertation) or a PgCert (where you study only the first three modules listed above).
