Public Health Online Courses

Public health has historically been concerned with the protection of health through the control of disease and environmental risks, the promotion of good health through lifestyle, and the effective use of health resources.

With an expanding population and increased life expectancy, along with factors like climate change and unhealthy lifestyles, there is a need to protect communities and prevent disease and ill health among large groups of people.

Our public health courses are online and suitable for healthcare professionals with an interest in public health – this could include, but is not limited to, doctors, GPs, nurses, pharmacists, policymakers, public health professionals, geographers, exercise scientists, sociologists, and environmental scientists. This public health distance learning course is ideal for those who are unable to attend on-campus classes due to a busy work and life schedule.
