Public Health

Our BA (Hons) Public Health course opens the door to a world of possibilities. As the health of the nation becomes an increasingly important issue for the government, there has never been a better time to embark on a degree in Public Health. Public Health is not about the individual: it is about people, and what they need to keep healthy and well. We all share common traits, whether it’s our age, occupation, ethnicity, or where we live. By focusing on these, public health professionals can improve the health and wellbeing of many people at the same time. As well as analysing community traits, this degree will teach you all about health promotion, health economics and epidemiology. You will learn how to educate people about change, how to make effective use of limited resources, and how diseases arise and spread, including ‘lifestyle diseases’ such as diabetes. Our multi-disciplinary approach will develop your understanding of public health practice in a range of settings. You will acquire skills and expertise to identify the health priorities of a community, and have the ability to design, implement and evaluate appropriate interventions to tackle health inequalities. As a Public Health graduate, you will be well placed to move into a range of different careers that influence public health at both a national and international level. There are a growing number of possibilities for public health graduates, ranging from helping people to stop smoking or eat better, to tracking down and isolating outbreaks of disease. The possibilities are many. This is a degree that leads to multiple careers.
