Masters in Public Health

An MPH is typically a years course (full time) or can be studied part time over a two year period, this option is ideal for colleagues already in employment.  The course covers a broad range of topics related to public health, including epidemiology, biostatistics, environmental health, health policy and management, social and behavioural sciences, global health, and research methods. Students learn about the factors that influence health outcomes, the methods used to assess and address public health issues, and strategies for promoting health and preventing diseases on a population level.
