A professor of biomechanics at the university and a key personality in the development of the online programme, Dr. Raymond Lee programme in a release, said the inter-disciplinarian programme would enable students to learn from one another and collaborate across geographic regions and disciplines to address health challenges.
He noted that the 29-month online based programme was being offered by the university in collaboration with online learning expert, Laureate International Universities, a global network of high-quality, innovative and accredited institutions of higher education.
Roehampton University Masters in Public Health (MPH) programme, according to him, is designed for professionals and practitioners already working in specific areas relating to public health who are looking to advance their skills and knowledge in the field, as well as those looking to transition to a career in public health. “Students may come from a wide range of backgrounds, including healthcare, education, business, government and charitable organisations.
Participants in the programme are afforded the opportunity to learn from the diverse experience available within the global classroom while developing an international professional network outside of the classroom,” he added.
Lee said the programme would also allow students to connect with public health practitioners in other countries and regions, providing them with a global perspective and access to international expertise from a diverse range of disciplines, which won’t be available in a traditional classroom.
