Course summary

OVERVIEW OF THE PROGRAMME

Are you interested in health, mental health and wellbeing? Do you want to make a real difference to people’s lives? At the heart of this unique programme is the aim to enable students to help individuals, communities and nations live happier and healthier lives. It is well known that health care organisations in the UK and beyond face unprecedented demands, and there is a real need to invest in public health, mental health and wellbeing and look critically at models of health care.

This exciting and forward thinking programme will encourage students to consider the public health, mental health and wellbeing challenges of both today and tomorrow. It will also facilitate a creative and problem solving approach to the area in order to improve, enhance and sometimes re-imagine ways of working.

The ultimate aim of the programme is to enable students to contribute to the development of effective and sustainable ways of protecting, improving and promoting health, mental health and wellbeing, whether that be at individual, community, national or international levels.

The programme is flexible, ambitious and supportive, and will provide students with the opportunity to further their knowledge and understanding and develop and enhance their practice, as well as ask questions and work collaboratively in the area of public health, mental health and wellbeing.

KEY COURSE FEATURES

  • Delivered by experts across public health, mental health, wellbeing and education

  • Includes option modules to enable students to tailor the content to areas of interest and/or relevance to them

ASSESSMENT & TEACHING

The programme employs an innovative blended learning approach whereby students can ‘blend their own’ learning. Students will be required to attend a ‘live’ induction session before the programme commences during which the learning and teaching strategy will be explained in detail. Essentially, core aspects of all modules will be delivered on a weekly basis in a classroom setting (approx. 20 hours in total per module), which will be captured via lecture capture software such as Panopto. The software will capture the visual and audio aspects of the sessions and the recordings will be made available on the Virtual Learning Environment (VLE) to all students, alongside directed study. Students will be able to self-select which sessions they will attend face-to-face and which they will access by viewing online. This will enable students to engage with the classroom and VLE as they choose and give real control and flexibility over how and when learning occurs.

CAREER PROSPECTS

  • Health promotion
