Health Promotion

The MA/PDip programme aims to provide you with professional education and training. The programme includes a work place- ment, facilitating the development of the core competencies of health promotion practice. The programme covers: • Theoretical background in the concepts and principles of health promotion; • Determinants of physical, mental and social well-being; • Application of health promotion interventions across diverse population groups, topics and settings; • Critical role of the research process in the development of knowledge and best practice in health promotion. The MA incorporates the taught component of the PDip together with a minor dissertation based on original research. An optional European dimension module entails a placement in another EU member state. A full list of modules is on the course website. The programme is delivered through a blend of online and face-to-face contact. Some on-campus attendance is expected from students.
