Course summary

Are you looking for the skills to promote the health of populations in low, middle and high income settings through the development of effective health policies, services and interventions? This MSc will give you the competencies to do this in a field that has become more complex in the past two decades with the dramatic increase in donor funding, the rise of more complex patterns of co-morbidity, emerging infectious diseases such as COVID-19, anti-microbial resistance and the impact of conflict and migration on health and health systems.

You will gain practical expertise in developing, planning, implementing and evaluating both research projects as well as interventions through a range of approaches and methods.

This MSc is geared to provide you with these skills to find employment in global health.

This course is particularly suited to individuals working, or planning to work, in enhancing population health in middle or low-income countries, within governmental (eg Ministry of Health), non-governmental (NGO) or intergovernmental organisations (eg WHO or UN agencies).
