In the context of a world with escalating health problems, we must take an integrated approach to health and consider humans, animals, plants and the environment as one connected whole.
The World Health Organisation, the Food and Agriculture Organisation of the United Nations, the World Organisation for Animal Health and other organisations endorse the concept of One Health. It is all about linking ideas, research and policies from multiple sectors to achieve better health outcomes.
Our Master of Science offers you a chance to be part of the exciting and growing field of One Health.
Whether you are from a medical, environmental, economic or social science background, at our world-class institution, we will teach you the necessary knowledge, understanding and skills to work in a One Health context and help improve health for all.
Our online One Health MSc programme seeks to explore an integrative approach to human, veterinary and ecological health, recognising the importance of interdisciplinary collaborations and the interconnectedness of public health, environmental issues, veterinary and human medicine.
Throughout the programme, we also raise awareness of cultural and societal factors that influence how One Health approaches are translated into practice.
The University of Glasgow is renowned for its world-changing research and teaching in One Health.
One Health research at the University of Glasgow is vibrant and includes projects that aim to improve surveillance of anthrax in Africa, that work towards the elimination of rabies in Tanzania and that investigate Lyme disease on Uist. Learn more about this and other exciting research here. It is this ongoing research that inspires the innovative, multinational ideas running throughout our multidisciplinary programme.
On successful completion this programme, you will be able to:
- Recognise and discuss the interdisciplinary nature of the One Health framework.
- Appraise the interdependence of human, veterinary, public and ecological health.
- Demonstrate a critical awareness of current issues and priorities in the field of One Health.

- Apply a One Health approach to theoretical and/or practical situations.
- Explain the causation, pathogenesis, clinical features, diagnosis, management, and control of relevant infectious diseases within a One Health framework.
- Appraise epidemiological approaches used to understand the health of animal and human populations.
- Interpret and discuss research within a One Health framework.
- Critically engage with forms of analysis, evaluation and synthesis to issues relevant to One Health.
