Overview

This Foundations in Public Health module will provide you with the essential knowledge and skills that underpin public health theory and practice within a global contemporary context.

We'll explore historic and current trends in public health, with an emphasis on the reduction of health inequalities and the causes of premature death through pre-emptive action. Our weekly units will examine the key determinants of health including:

  • environmental
  • behavioural
  • socio-economic
  • cultural and disease factors.

Global perspectives are integrated into each unit providing you with knowledge and skills that demonstrate cross-cultural awareness, and valuing human diversity. We'll consider Inequalities across groups, populations and countries, as well as links between health inequalities and race, gender, employment status and class.

You will be assessed 70% through coursework and 30% through exam.  This module may be taken as a standalone module with 200 hours of study over 12 weeks and also as part of a programme of study.
