To ensure that our communities are strong and sustainable, it is important to continue to improve the health and well-being of our population.
The government’s investment in public health and primary care emphasises the importance of good leadership and the need for innovative practice.
Community practitioners are vital to improving the health of the population as they are committed to working with individuals, families and communities within the public health agenda.
Their expertise in public health allows them to have insight into how social and environmental factors can influence the health and well-being of people in society.
This course helps practitioners to develop their role in protecting, promoting and improving public health.
The course uses a range of teaching and learning methods which offer a variety of opportunities. Teaching is carried out through formal taught sessions and discussion groups/seminars using action-based learning approaches.
The degree offers the option for students to engage in a work-based learning module as part of the Postgraduate Certificate and Diploma programmes.
