This course is for national and international students interested in pursuing a career in public health and health promotion.
"The programme as a whole has also broadened my skills in searching various data bases and to be able to evaluate the quality of research … I would not have missed this learning experience for the world!"
"The culture of the academic community at CCCU is wonderful. The intellectual challenge of the MSc has provided me with an excellent education experience, one that makes me thoroughly confident in my abilities as a public health professional.”
This course is for those who wish to study:
- Part-time afternoon
- Part-time day
You will have a relevant first degree, normally in a health or social-science related field OR you will have a professional registration in health, or social care or an equivalent field.
Normally you will have had some relevant work experience, be working in a relevant field of practice, or will have access to one.
Consideration is given to other graduates, or equivalent, who can demonstrate the relevance of this award to their career development. For example, we have been pleased to have lawyers, engineers, priests and human biologists study with us.
International students will need to meet the requirements of any international student coming to study in the UK.
The course enables those who are not currently working in mainstream public health to enter the field, for example those who work in a health-related clinical setting will be better placed to switch to public health work.
You will enjoy learning alongside, and from, a range of students from different disciplines and professions.
By coming to Canterbury Christ Church University, you will be joining a postgraduate programme that has been running for thirty years, and you will be taught by our highly experienced and research active team of staff.
Our postgraduates are now leading early intervention work such as Good Beginnings in Australia, the integration of health and social care, completing PhDs in topics such as arts and health, carrying out research and teaching in universities across the world, setting up their own health care companies, leading school nursing services, commissioning public health research for the European Commission, and many more have taken their learning into their workplaces and communities where they are making a real difference and working towards a healthier world.
