Course summary


Gain the skills, knowledge and leadership capabilities to thrive within public health environments. Our Masters degree will enable you to make a positive contribution to public health service provision and research environments. From epidemiological research to communities of health, healthcare financing to service commissioning, this course covers the key concepts. In the UK, the increasing demand for health care alongside the reduction in funding for healthcare systems means there is an increased need for a trained, effective workforce of public health professionals. The field of public health is ever-expanding, particularly in the context of a growing aging population, thus the market requires increased numbers of public health professionals. Our MSc Public Health and Community Wellbeing course is designed to prepare you to meet public health needs in the UK, through emphasis on localised skills such as economic evaluations, NHS commissioning, and regional public health concerns.

You could be working in a public health-related role already or are ambitious to enter the field. In either case you’ll find a wealth of valuable content here, taught by expert tutors and researchers. At ARU, our postgraduate Public Health and Community Wellbeing degree takes a modern approach, by directly addressing the social, economic, political and other factors that influence population health and community wellbeing. It explores public health locally and is particularly relevant to UK populations within diverse community groups. You’ll learn how to apply advanced theory and techniques to practical scenarios. Your course will culminate in planning, researching and writing your Masters project. This can be research or work-based, focusing on your areas of particular interest.

How you'll be assessed

We have designed our assessments to ensure both theoretical knowledge and practical skills are assessed. Our assessments are authentic, inclusive and give UK-based experience. Assessments have been developed to include skills you'll need in your future public health careers such as policy briefs, persuasive arguments, intervention development and written evaluations, debates, community needs assessments.


This MSc Public Health and Community Wellbeing has been mapped against the Faculty of Public Health Public Health Training Curriculum and does therefore assist with achieving professional recognition. Graduates will be able to work in a variety of sectors such as health, government, voluntary organisations, public health service provision and research environments. Graduation doesn’t have to be the end of your time with us. You could choose to continue your academic career with a PhD programme at ARU.
