If you know of anyone who has been thinking of doing the Masters – we have a post graduate open evening on Tuesday Feb 7th at Falmer campus , 4.30 -7.30pm see https://www.brighton.ac.uk/studying-here/visit-us/open-days/postgraduate-events/2017-02-07-falmer-campus-open-day.aspx
Attached is the flyer for the newly revamped MSc Health Promotion, all newly aligned to the International Union of Health Promotion & Education core competencies, and UK Public Health Skills framework. The course can be taken part time- typically 2-3 years, but up to 6 years, so plenty of time to take one or two modules a year and gradually build up the masters dissertation. Modules typically run 5 days a week intensively.
University of Brighton is the only University in England to offer a masters in Health Promotion. We like the language of Health Promotion; ‘Health Improvement’ could be seen as pejorative, implying that everyone can be improved. From an assets perspective we also need to protect and promote existing good practice.
After the revalidation there is now a clear distinction between the MSc Public Health ( Brighton & Sussex Medical School, BSMS), which has an emphasis and mandatory modules on epidemiology and statistics, and the MSc Health Promotion which is focussed on community empowerment, social determinants of health and practical interventions. We still share modules, but the study pathways are different.
The new MSc Health Promotion includes a placement or experience exchange module and options to take modules in Social Marketing at the Brighton Business School, Nutrition and Public Health from BSMS, education and management modules.
