15 Credits SPRING

Aims/Description: ScHARR is well known for its high-quality and impactful research. Engaging with the research process on relevant public health topics through problem-based learning will provide students with practical skills not just for future research but also transferable skills for other areas relating to public health, for example policy making and designing and implementing public health interventions. This module is offered as an optional module on the MPH, and it will complement the core modules in allowing students to concentrate on specific aspects of public health practice and research, and develop and advance transferable employability skills.

Restrictions on availability: HAR6030 must be studied before HAR6522.
