The ‘& management’ pathway is suitable for those already working in health or health promotion, either with some management experience or wanting to gain skills to enter management of health promotion programmes. Students take three core health promotion modules (including the community placement module), a research methods module and two additional management-related modules.
This pathway is NOT suitable for those with little employment experience because the assessment methods usually require reflection on experience of management or being managed in the workplace.
Students who are new to health promotion/public health but interested in management you should follow the main Health Promotion pathway and take one or two management modules as optional modules.
The dissertation is expected to reflect and draw on aspects of management of health promotion initiatives covered in the management modules studied.
