Key facts

The diverse nature of public health means that no day is the same. From interviewing students about drug and alcohol addiction or creating a campaign about exercise and nutrition in a poor area of the UK to writing a report to inform a government about a rare disease in a developing country.

You’ll gain the practical skills needed in real situations, from taking part in simulated scenarios and community based research to creating reports, presentations and demonstrations to present to panels and judges. We’ll support you to develop confidence and effectiveness needed when working in collaborative groups. Back in the classroom you’ll gain research and analytical skills to be able to interpret data and understand how to create solutions and reports from these. From developing technologies and health trends to your social media presence and campaigning, we monitor and change with the landscape, so your degree is always relevant.

When you graduate from the Public Health (Hons) programme at Anglia Ruskin University, you’ll be equipped to use evidence to help plan and implement health solutions for individuals and communities and to develop effective health policies. You’ll also be aware of important issues like health inequalities and social justice, be familiar with useful health needs assessment and data analysis tools, and have developed effective communication skills.


Public health has never been more important or relevant as it is in today’s ageing and complex society, making it a wide-ranging and interesting career choice.

You might like to work as a public health practitioner, youth worker, drug and alcohol worker, public health information officer or analyst, health improvement practitioner, health protection practitioner, sexual health advisor, smoking cessation co-ordinator, community development or outreach worker, health communications officer or even go into health-related research.

The skills and knowledge you gain in our course will not only allow you to work in local government and the National Health Service, but also in education, private and consultancy roles and non-profit organisations in the UK or for international agencies like the World Health Organization or UNICEF.
