This degree is for anyone excited by the explosion of community public health initiatives all over the UK that are aimed at improving people's health through strategies incorporating social change, reducing inequalities, changing public policies, new products and services, better housing, improved quality health care and local regeneration schemes.
The programme is multidisciplinary, reflecting central government policies in public health. Anyone who has a strong sense of fairness will be interested in each of the specific core and optional subjects offered as part of this degree. The highlight for many students is the placement opportunity that is offered in the third year, where students spend time in working with possible future employers. This programme is one of only two offered to undergraduates in London and the South East.
Our commitment to students doesn't end with graduation, this degree programme has a strong focus on graduate employability and we are continually developing on existing links with health and social care providers to help direct graduates into work. We also work closely with professional bodies that represent the public health workforce nationally and this relationship has assisted with the development of this degree.
