Canterbury Christ Church University Health Studies

The Health Studies degree courses will equip you with the knowledge and skills necessary to meet the requirements of the public health workforce to practice as either a practitioner with a public health component to your work or as a specialist public health practitioner.

The Government is supporting the expansion of public health and health promotion, and wanting graduates to have a good understanding of the range of issues that cause ill health, and know how to improve people’s health and wellbeing. The Health Studies degree courses aim to meet these requirements.

This course is for students interested in pursuing a career in public health and health promotion.

What will I study?

Our Health Studies degree courses focus on teaching and learning around the growing understanding that the prevention of ill health and promotion of health and wellbeing is far better for individuals and society than a sole focus on curing illness.

As a Health Studies student you will study the mental, emotional, social, physical, spiritual, political and environmental influences on health and how current Government policy aims to address these.
