Learn about the social, cultural, economic and political factors that affect health as well as identify health patterns and trends in the health and wellness of individuals, neighbourhoods and populations. You will be able to empower individuals, families and societies to make healthy lifestyle changes through effective verbal, written, audio-visual, social media presentation and communication methods. The University provides an excellent volunteering service with opportunities in public health related charities and not for profit organisations. You can also develop wider skills such as taking part in organising and taking part in real-world health promotion such as a World AIDS day flash mob and a student-led health conference seminar. This course includes Making Every Contact Count (MECC) training (usually delivered in Year 2). MECC is about taking every opportunity to ask, assist and advise people about their lifestyles, including:
- physical activity
- healthy eating
- mental wellbeing
- work effectively with diverse groups involved in the promotion of public health
- deliver and evaluate innovative health promotion campaigns
- influence the development of policy for healthy communities
