Course summary

In the face of escalating global healthcare issues, 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. In order to achieve better health outcomes, One Health links ideas, research and policies from multiple sectors.

Our online MSc in One Health offers you a chance to be part of this exciting new field. Whether you're from a medical, environmental, economic or social science background, at our world-class institution, we will give 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 distance learning 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. Our research 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. It is this ongoing research that inspires the innovative, multinational ideas running throughout our multidisciplinary programme.

Fuelled by the latest research-led knowledge, this online programme is perfect for busy professionals looking to diversify or expand into careers where you need to understand the big picture. One Health graduates go on to work for governments and international bodies like the United Nations, as well as pharmaceutical organisations and scientific journals.

CHOOSE YOUR OWN PATH

Studying a 100% online programme gives you the flexibility to study at a time and place that suits you. Furthermore, the programme’s modular structure gives you the flexibility to choose a line of study to suit your interests or career goals covering a number of science and health-related fields.

Supported by cross-discipline lecturers, you can follow routes ranging from veterinary health and service delivery to antimicrobial resistance and infectious disease control. Thanks to the multidisciplinary nature of the programme, you’ll benefit from sharing your interests and experiences with students from other healthcare programmes. At the end of the programme, you’ll have the opportunity to apply your knowledge and special interests by undertaking a project of your choice.

Students can also exit with PGDip and PGCert awards.
