MPH in International Development

This course combines the latest academic work with hands-on, practical experience from the Department of Geography and the School of Health and Related Research (ScHARR). Combining engagements with contemporary public health and development theory, policy and practice; you develop expert knowledge and understanding in the health needs and interventions appropriate to the public health challenges encountered in international development.

This programme prepares you with the knowledge and skills to inform policy makers, planners, managers and practitioners as to the critical importance of public health and its development. The programme is designed so that students experience development theory alongside public health development practice. Our emphasis on applied knowledge and skills is developed through professional skills, field-class and placement work which ensures our students develop the practical and theoretical skills needed to work within development organisations across the world.
