Community and Public Health Theme
Broad and integrated research is carried out and applied at both national and international levels
This theme has a broad and integrated programme of research that is locally relevant and applicable nationally and internationally. It is also cross-departmental within LSBU's School of Health and Social Care.
Issues are addressed that concern the health and wellbeing status and behaviour of individuals, groups and communities. The work is informed by a desire to build an evidence base of what works and for whom. Then, the translation of research findings inform education and practice development and service effectiveness.
Aims of the research are to:
- undertake high quality research that can inform policy and practice
- evaluate new interventions that may improve health and wellbeing
- promote understanding of the health and wellbeing needs of communities and population groups
The Community and Public Health theme is led by Professor Jane Wills. Search our People Finder for academics working in this theme.
At LSBU we recognise that you want to build on the potential and intellectual interests you have already developed. Our range of Research programmes focus on a major piece of independent research. A PhD, by definition, is an original contribution to knowledge. Therefore, our students become world experts in whatever field of research they are engaged in.
The School of Health and Social Care offers Research Degrees which enable you to conduct research in a topic area of interest to you:
- PhD: full time - 3 years/part time - 5-6 years
- MPhil: full time - 2 years/part time - 3 years
- Professional Doctorate: part time only - 5 years
The School of Health and Social Care at LSBU currently has around 40 full and part-time MPhil/PhD students, for whom there are monthly seminars, support groups and an annual Summer School at which students are expected to present their work. There is an equipped MPhil/ PhD area within our School and our students are actively encouraged to attend a rolling programme of research methods courses. Read more about Research Degrees at LSBU.
