Description

Advertisement

Health Promotion is a broad field which draws on the disciplines of psychology, sociology, and epidemiology and community development to achieve its aims of behaviour change and a fairer society for all. The Health Promotion programme looks to examine subjects which impact on the quality of health and offers the opportunity to examine in more detail preventative measures aimed at supporting health.
The postgraduate programme in Health Promotion is designed to meet the needs of students from a wide variety of backgrounds and experiences and is offered to a range of health and social care professionals. The programme is based on the principles of the multidimensional nature of health and aims to enable participants to develop skills and knowledge required for a variety of roles in health promotion practice.

Evidence-based practice and research are seen as high priorities in health and social care and the programme will help students to develop the ability to analyse and synthesise health data and research findings in critical and inquisitive ways. Inter-professional collaboration is seen as a valuable tool of the multidisciplinary learning and by sharing different aspects of the programme students will gain an understanding and insight into each others field of practice. This will enable them to engage in dialogue with a critical community of peers and to develop skills for participatory health policy-making. Our students come from different parts of the world and from diverse cultures which broadens and enriches professional experience and knowledge

Contents

The MSc programme is structured on a semester basis and can be taken over a period of eighteen months to six years. The first semester runs from September to January; the second semester from February to June. Completion of the programme requires a minimum study period of 3 semesters.

All modules are at M Level and are awarded 30 M Level Credits. The taught component of each module lasts for 12 weeks. Each of the modules will entail the same amount of study (300 hours). This is divided between contact time at the University, directed study (pursuing learning objectives specifically associated with the module) and private study which includes reading and preparation of assignments. The allocation of the hours will vary between modules.

The completion of this programme involves the successful completion of the four core modules [three taught and one semi-taught; the dissertation] plus two optional modules.

The Dissertation is a self-directed, semi-taught module and is undertaken with the guidance of a supervisor and supported by group sessions with the module leader. There are additional resources available within the University to assist you with your study skills.

In exceptional circumstances, and at the discretion of the Programme Leader, the dissertation may be taken as a double module [60 credits]. To compensate the final number of credits taken, students accepted in this path are exempted from taking one of the optional modules.

Learning environment
The Masters programme aims to encourage students to develop a reflective approach to practice, an ability to transfer skills and knowledge across specialities and a commitment to life-long learning.

The teaching facilities relevant for these programme at the Stratford Campus of UEL comprise of lecture theatres, computer laboratories and seminar rooms and will be utilised, as appropriate, to provide suitable learning environments in line with module requirements. The Stratford Campus library, open 24 hours a day during semesters, is adjacent to the teaching facilities and provides computer, multimedia and paper-based resources for students. Additional Web-based support is available via our virtual learning environment, UELPlus, for off-campus support of students via internet access
