Master of Public Health, Liverpool University - JLEC

Master of Public Health (MPH)

Our MPH programme gives you a thorough understanding of all the main disciplines of public health, providing a strong basis for a high-level career in the field.

About the programme

Core modules cover epidemiology and qualitative research methods, including the application of appropriate study designs, their critical appraisal and the essential principles and procedures for ethical practice.

You personalise your Masters through a wide range of electives from Health Impact Assessment to Health Promotion, from Environment and Health to Public Health Nutrition. You will complete your programme with a dissertation based on your own original public health research guided by an expert in your chosen field.
