The aim of the BSc Health Promotion and Public Health undergraduate degree is to provide graduates with enhanced knowledge of health improvement and health protection provision, policy, strategies, and initiatives to be equipped for roles in multiple organisations, including the NHS and other health services, community outreach, professional associations, and in local, national and international contexts. The programme content reflects political and external factors that influence provision of Health Promotion and Public Health in the UK and internationally. A critical awareness of the wider determinants of health will inform students’ own personal and professional development and specifically their own leadership skills. In year two students will undertake a placement in settings and organisations leading, commissioning and/or delivering Health Promotion and Public Health initiatives. In year three the research dissertation offers opportunity for students to build on the placement experience by examining the relevant evidence base and to produce a health improvement project. Graduates of the BSc Health Promotion and Public Health will have the skills and knowledge to work autonomously and collaboratively in a diverse range of initiatives and organisations to improve the health and wellbeing of individuals and communities and reduce heath inequalities.
