Course summary

Law has rarely been the focus of dedicated study in the context of global public health. Yet legal frameworks and instruments continue to influence both the content and delivery of public health standards and policy goals. In this MSc you will critically examine this relationship, with teaching by medical doctors, public health consultants, lawyers, economists, political scientists and others.

  • Consider the work of international organisations including the World Bank, International Monetary Fund, and World Trade Organization
  • Explore philanthropic actors such as the Gates Foundation; private companies including Big Pharma and Big Tobacco
  • Learn about global health partnerships such as GAVI and the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria
  • Gain a thorough grounding in key concepts and research methods including epidemiology and statistics and the policy and practice of health systems

Facilities

At Queen Mary you will have access to a number of advanced facilities, some of which are designated exclusively to postgraduate students. These include:

  • the Blizard Building, which has state of-the-art facilities for students and staff including open-plan research laboratories, office space, a 400-seater lecture theatre and a café, and several seminar rooms
  • a Learning Resources Centre, open around the clock, with 200 networked PCs solely for the use of postgraduate students
  • medical libraries located at the Royal London and St Bart's hospitals and at the Queen Mary Mile End campus
  • access to the Postgraduate Reading Room
  • research access to the British Library.

Career paths

You will develop skills and knowledge to help you pursue a career related to global health and international development. You could end up working in health and public policy at local, national, or international level, as well as in governmental and international bodies and NGOs.

Our students have gone on to further postgraduate research both with the Global Public Health Unit at Queen Mary and other universities.
