Public Health and Individual Wellbeing are two contemporary mainstream areas of employment that pose a challenge to western societies but also globally. The prevalence and incidence of many of the major illnesses and diseases that are the largest causes of morbidity and mortality are the result of poor lifestyle in western cultures, which are related to poor food choices and diet, sedentary behaviour and a lack of habitual physical activity, smoking, stress and social and mental health. There are also strong interrelationships between public health and individual wellbeing and the level of poverty, deprivation, unemployment, stress and mental health. This degree has been developed in partnership with the Royal Society for Public Health and with wider public health workforce development, to respond to the growing need for a workforce with experience, knowledge and skills in public and individual health improvement. The degree has also been aligned with a range of national and international public health practitioner frameworks. You will learn about the determinants, patterns and effects of global, national, regional and community health alongside the personal responses, behaviours and choices that partly define us as individuals.
