Course summary

Overview

The Global Health MSc is a pioneering set of programmes that brings together students from a range of disciplines to understand and analyse significant health challenges. The course will equip you with the knowledge and skills to critically reflect on health and healthcare across the world and the opportunity to apply this knowledge with supported practical experience in an international context.

Course detail

The Global Health MSc takes an innovative approach to teaching by providing an interdisciplinary foundation in health and social sciences alongside providing you with the opportunity to specialise in Global Surgery, should you wish (see more information on this below). This applied approach will enable you to reflect on theoretical and ethical debates and assess their relevance to the realities of fieldwork using case studies. You will have the opportunity to learn from experts in the field and share their knowledge and experiences of working in healthcare, development and humanitarian settings. This course is made up of optional and required modules totalling 180 credits, with 60 credits coming from a dissertation based on your specialised area of study.

Teaching and assessment

The primary method of assessment for this course is a combination of group and individual presentations, group poster projects and coursework essays. The dissertation will be assessed on an extended piece of writing. The study time and assessment methods detailed above are typical and give you a good indication of what to expect. However, they are subject to change.

Career prospects

This programme provides high quality graduate training for students seeking employment in the global health sector in high and low income countries, in humanitarian emergency settings, and in policy making, research and advocacy roles.
