The Sheffield Master of Public Health (MPH) provides students with a strong grounding in the fundamental principles and practice of public health. Its flexible modular structure allows the course to meet a wide range of student needs and interests and to tailor learning to particular areas of public health. It will take students through core modules and on to a wide range of optional modules to suit different needs and interests and on to an independent dissertation project allowing further in-depth study of a current public health topic. Our staff are internationally recognized researchers and draw on this experience and expertise to teach and supervise MPH students, drawing on contemporary public health issues such as new and existing communicable disease control problems, obesity, alcohol and tobacco, and health inequalities.
The MPH is suitable for students from any background and nationality, and students will typically study alongside other students from many different countries and different levels of experience, whether this is clinical or non-clinical. We provide lectures, tutorials and seminars, along with group activities, computer-based learning and a comprehensive range of study support. Public Health is about improving and protecting the health of groups of people and you'll be interested in why people become ill at a population level, how this can be prevented and how they can be treated. We prepare our students well so that they can go on to become high caliber public health practitioners in a range of settings globally, that include data analysis and intelligence, planning, implementing and evaluating public health interventions, co-ordinating and managing public health services and undertaking public health research. Our MPH is available in a number of different formats, allowing even further flexibility for students who want to focus more on management and leadership, or public health service research.
