This programme revolves around developing, evaluating and promoting health interventions at the individual, community and policy levels.

Do you like working with certain groups - children, older people, employees, patients? Do you want to help make environments and organisations conducive to healthy living? Are you interested in why people smoke, drink, or overeat - an in helping to change these behaviours? The programme combines aspects of psychology, communication, epidemiology, biomedicine, sociology, political science, management & statitics to help you in promoting health and wellbeing. You address questions like: How can we change our surroundings to make it easier to engage in health behaviour? How can we use social networks to promote health? Why do so many people intend to do something, but fail to actually do so? This is a one-year full-time or two-year part-time programme taught in English.
