Taking into account the growing need for Public Health Professionals, especially in the current COVID-19 pandemic, The School of Medicine at University of Limerick has introduced the Master of Science in Public Health Programme commencing from the 2020-2021 academic session.

The programme is designed to equip students with marketable and transferable skillset and competencies that will enhance their career in public health or other health-related disciplines, both locally and internationally. The focus is to move from the traditional public health teaching into the competency-based and applied public health. This programme is recommend to students who are looking to acquire marketable and transferable skillset, and those who would like to get the sense of personal accomplishment, and those who would like to move in positions of leadership in healthcare.

The programme will equip students with differentiated competencies including tangible skills that will not only be marketed to future employers, but they also prepare our graduates for self-employment and consultancies.




The MSc Public health curriculum received international Curriculum Validation from the Agency for Public Health Education Accreditation (APHEA) in 2020 even before the start of the first academic year. This is a remarkable achievement for our programme and the University. We are very proud and thankful to APHEA team for their continuous support and feedback throughout the Curriculum Validation process. We highly recommend APHEA for quality assurance of public health teaching and training.
