Summary

Course description

Our distance learning Master of Public Health (MPH) course meets the training needs of health professionals around the world who are interested in a career in public health or those seeking new skills in this area.

Contemporary public health practice requires practitioners to be adaptable and flexible, with a broad experience of a range of subject areas.

This course will equip you with:

the skills and knowledge to apply to public health concerns at local, national and international level;
the ability to apply relevant theory and scientific principles to practical situations;
the capability of meeting core-competencies in public health.

We offer a number of different pathways including PGCert, PGDip and MPH awards.

Coursework and assessment

You will use a number of assessed and non-assessed activities to develop key skills and expand your knowledge base. There are no written exams; assessment is based on assignments and other activities such as moderated discussion boards and group work.

Career opportunities

A career in public health offers diverse opportunities in a variety of settings.

Most of our students complete the course part-time while working in a wide variety of jobs and sectors, and many (eg GPs, hospital doctors, health promotion staff, managers and researchers) take the course to give them public health skills and expertise to apply within their own profession and/or setting.

Intercalating medical students from Manchester and elsewhere take the MPH if they are interested in careers in public health or general practice, or want to work in low and middle-income countries.

Some of our students use their expertise and qualifications to help them move into predominantly public health-related roles.
