About Public Health at Bournemouth University

This course gives you the opportunity to explore in-depth public health issues with public health academics, researchers and practitioners. It reflects local, national and international Public Health agendas and you will have the opportunity to focus your assignment work on your own specific public health-related interests. 

You'll learn about epidemiology and critical evaluation techniques to identify what influences the health of national and international populations and use these methods to determine their health status and needs.

Units in Public Health Management Strategies and Health Promotion & Partnership Working will enable you to formulate your own health solutions, consider the role and function of partnership working to improve public health, as well as critically evaluate health strategies.

The field of public health involves a variety of partners and agencies. As such, we welcome practitioners and professionals from a range of backgrounds, not necessarily in healthcare. Students studying Public Health have come from backgrounds such as doctors, teachers, nurses, midwives and community public health workers.

It is also possible to study some units online to gain a PG Cert in Public Health (part-time).
