The deadline for applications has been extended for Ireland’s first Online Master’s in Public Health commencing in September 2014. The new deadline is Friday 15th August.

The Online Master’s in Public Health can be completed either full-time over a year or part-time up to five years. This internationally-focused programme will provide individuals from a range of different professional backgrounds with the academic and experiential skills in the theory and practice of Public Health – Epidemiology, Biostatistics, Health Promotion and Health Protection.

“Public health is an exciting discipline which operates at the intersection of biology, behaviour and the environment. Public health skills are core to tackling the major challenges facing our planet in the 21 Century, including the global obesity crisis, tobacco control, the health effects of climate change, the effects of social injustice on health and the control of infectious disease in hospitals and in the community in both developed and developing countries. UCC’s Online MPH builds on a decade of experience of designing and delivering internationally competitive campus based programmes in public health at undergraduate and post-graduate level. It is designed to provide an internationally recognised masters level qualification in Public Health from a major university, ranked in the top 2% of universities worldwide. It will recruit students from a wide range of academic backgrounds in the biological, behavioural, social and environmental sciences together with health care professionals in medicine, nursing, dentistry and the allied health professions.”
