Public Health

What if there was a Masters in Public Health (MPH) that enabled you to help both individuals and whole communities? Imagine if such a course gave you the skills to protect populations against disease, or play a part in ground breaking research.

With academic professionals at the forefront of their fields advising bodies such as the World Health Organisation on key public health issues, we’re well placed to give you the knowledge to make a real difference.

Your learning at Warwick can help you on the road to career progression.

The public health courses at WMS draw upon expertise across a wide range of subject areas and seek to explore the complexity of public health issues in the UK and internationally.

The programmes are designed to provide relevant qualifications to meet national and international needs for a skilled public health workforce and to prepare students for further academic study with a view to academic careers.

You can learn more about the courses in these interviews with two members of our teaching team, Dr Wendy Robertson and Dr Oyinlola Oyebode.
