What will I learn?

Public Health is vital to ensure the health, safety and well-being of the population. It is a fascinating and rewarding area to study and work in and LJMU allows you to explore this topic in depth.“Sex, drugs, and rock ‘n’ roll”; This course will equip the modern public health practitioner with the skills and knowledge to tackle these, and other, important public health issues which are becoming increasingly more relevant and visible to both government and the general population. The structure of this course is guided by the Institute’s expertise, covering diverse topics such as sexual health (sex), alcohol and drugs (drugs), violence, nightlife and noise pollution (rock ‘n’ roll), alongside teaching and learning of core public health skills and knowledge, informed by the UK Public Health Skills and Knowledge Framework. You will cover all the different areas of activity within public health: technical, contextual and delivery. You will learn these through focussing on core domains of public health: surveillance and assessment of the population’s health, assessing the effectiveness of health interventions, policy and strategy development, and leadership and collaborative working to improve population health and wellbeing. The programme will also allow exploration of key concepts and tools of public health such as health inequalities, global health, health promotion, health protection, epidemiology and public health intelligence. You will study the social determinants of health (the conditions in which people are born, grow, work and age), which can lead to avoidable differences in quality of life and persisting health inequity. You will gain practical experience in the design and delivery of public health, acquiring an appreciation of the policy and practice landscape that public health works within.
