Queen’s University Belfast

A MPH is an internationally recognised qualification opening up many employment opportunities throughout the world.

The course equips students with the knowledge and skills base to pursue a career in public health or other health-related leadership roles.

The curriculum for the MPH at Queen’s is aligned very closely to the syllabus for the professional exams for the UK Faculty of Public Health.

The MPH is designed to introduce students to:

The ‘science’ of public health practice: a robust, systematic and evidence-based approach to define and understand population health issues and problems.

The ‘art’ of public health practice – interpersonal and organisational skills to work in partnership with others; influence decisions; support implementation of policy, programmes or interventions; and effect real change. It aims to identify optimal solutions for health gain within available resources.

Further information on undertaking an Intercalated Degree at QUB is available on the School of Medicine, Dentistry & Biomedical Sciences webpages.
