¿Qué aprenderé?

The MSc in Global Public Health provides students with the critical analysis and breadth of knowledge to act confidently to address contemporary health challenges.

About this course

There are a number of public health challenges facing our society and all societies today, including:

increasing inequalities
climate change
displacement of populations

The MSc in Global Public Health addresses these issues and others, and encourages you to consider the roles of and interactions between governments, international organisations, and multinational corporations in addressing these challenges.

The United Nations and the World Health Organization have identified ways to improve health for all, such as the UN Sustainable Development Goals. To work towards such public health targets as universal health coverage and universal access to care, it is necessary to have an understanding of complex health interventions in their social, political, and economic contexts.

This global health masters course grows out of the Institute’s determination to undertake research and teaching to:

reduce health inequalities
address social injustice
improve population health locally, nationally, and internationally.

What you'll learn

Some of the global health issues that may be covered include:

how can medicines be designed and delivered so everyone has access to them?
what is the role of transnational and multinational organisations in health care delivery and how do they affect national and local health systems?
what is the right to health, and how can it be enforced and exercised?
how much should health professionals best work with patients, carers, and communities to encourage good health and how much should they tackle inequalities and larger social factors?

This Global Public Health MSc aims to develop your knowledge of the varied analyses and methodologies required by:

modern day doctors and health professionals
policy makers
consultants
public servants

You will be able to understand and critique information and practice, and to advocate effectively on behalf of your patients and communities.

You will also receive research training in public health sciences, with a thorough grounding in introductory and advanced research methods.

Your development

You can follow your interests and develop specialisms through the global public health research project, which is developed in collaboration with our expert staff. You can choose from a wide range of projects put forward by our academics, or propose your own.

The Global Public Health MSc also provides a broad-ranging preparation for the Part A examination of the Faculty of Public Health. Our teaching has been mapped against the Faculty’s competencies for public health practitioners to ensure that we continue to provide an excellent academic training.

Placements

You are encouraged to complete work experience placements, which the university's careers service can help arrange. This experience helps to increase your transferable skills and enhance your CV.
