The MSc in Public Health and Health promotion is for anyone who is interested in promoting health and well-being. Representatives from Bangor University will be visiting McMaster Innovation Park in Hamilton, Ont at 175 Longwood Rd S on Monday, November 19th from 6-8 pm to discuss the program.
Due to the diverse nature of public health and health promotion, this course has been designed to accommodate the learning needs of individuals from a wide range of occupational backgrounds. Students focus on developing the knowledge and skills required for improving the health and well-being of culturally diverse individuals and populations in the following ways: the promotion of health and prevention of diseases; the development of skills to lead and manage change; and, the assessment, planning and evaluation of policy and practice interventions. Course content focuses on the factors that underpin public health and health promotion, epidemiology, health economics, research, and the social and behavioural sciences.
In terms of employment possibilities, there are numerous career options for those who have a grounding in public health and health promotion. Former students have gained employment in fields such as community development, health economics, health education, health promotion, higher education, economic development, environmental health, health promotion/health improvement, leadership and planning, nutrition, public health, research, training, and youth engagement. These roles are in a variety of settings including non-governmental organisations, public and government services, and the voluntary sectors. Although the roles and settings are varied, all have a focus on the protection and improvement of the health of whole populations.
