Masters in Public Health
The intersecting influences of financial volatility, food insecurities and climate change mean that more than ever before, public health is a global issue. Public health concerns continue to include social inequality, economic and environmental changes, political challenges, and issues of human rights. The Masters in Public Health (MPH) course at York offers the chance for students to get a solid grounding in this field through training in public health history and practice, epidemiology, and research methods. At the same time, this education will enable them to understand and incorporate a wider global vision of public health. The optional modules allow students the choice of focusing on research methodologies, economics, social science in relation to health, global public health, and health policy.
The public health training offered at York is suitable for students from a wide variety of disciplines who plan to work as public health practitioners, to become researchers, to work in governmental or non-governmental organisations, to go on to study medicine or to pursue PhD studies. The course also provides a solid foundation for those planning to take the membership examination of the Faculty of Public Health.
The MPH is run in association with the Hull York Medical School (HYMS) and is a member of the Association of Schools of Public Health in the European Region (ASPHER).
