St Mary’s University, Twickenham is delighted to announce the launch of the new postgraduate degree in Public Health.

This degree is taught solely online which allows students to work at their own pace. It teaches students the necessary skills to address societal issues, empower communities, nurture their empathy for others and make a positive contribution to society.

The programme adopts a multi-disciplinary approach covering topics including disease prevention, bioethics, human trafficking and violence, and leadership and management. The course is taught by academics who are involved in national and international research including collaborations with the World Health Organisation, the NHS and the Office for National Statistics (ONS).

MSc Public Health Course Lead, Dr Eirini Kelaiditi said “More than ever Public Health is a key priority for all. The COVID-19 pandemic has not only created demand for Public Health professionals, but also highlighted the wider role of Public Health. Our new MSc Public Health postgraduate degree at St Mary’s University Twickenham is an interdisciplinary vocational course with a strong focus on issues that impact population health and healthcare systems. The programme is delivered in a full-time (1 year) and part-time (2-3 years) distance learning format through our bespoke online learning platform by a dedicated multidisciplinary team of academics, researchers and Public Health practitioners”.
