Study Public Health Degrees

Public health is the branch of health and medicine that aims to improve the health and wellbeing of both big and small communities. You will be able to develop your understanding of public health, and how change can affect the wider community.

An undergraduate degree in public health will give you a foundation of knowledge around the area. You will study modules on population, health promotion, health protection, public health engagement, and gender, sexuality and health. These modules will allow you to improve your knowledge and skills.

Your degree will be delivered in a mixture of modes. These will include lectures and seminars, as well as practical sessions. You may be required to take part in a work placement as part of your degree.
