Why choose this course?

 

Are you interested in health and wellbeing? Do you want to make a real difference to people’s lives? If so, this is the programme for you.

 

At the heart of public health is helping people to enjoy healthier lives and preventing them from getting ill. In a society where the National Health Service is facing unprecedented demand, promoting good health and preventing poor health is of vital importance. There are many existing as well as new and exciting roles out there for public health and wellbeing graduates, from developing health promotion campaigns through to social prescribing and tackling health inequalities.

 

Students will:

  • be introduced to a whole range of health challenges affecting the nation, including obesity, substance misuse, loneliness, mental illness and air pollution & will learn what we can do to address these challenges.
  • learn about health behaviours at different life-stages – childhood, youth, adulthood and old age – and how to help different populations adopt healthy behaviours and change damaging ones.
  • develop your self-awareness and emotional literacy, alongside reflective and interpersonal skills – all of which are crucial to working effectively in public health.

 

This course is also available as a three year degree (without a foundation year) BSc (Hons) Public Health & Wellbeing UCAS code: L510
