Course content

With a focus on the social determinants of health, governance in global health, and climate change, this MSc in Global Public Health will deepen your understanding of global health issues and help you become an astute health professional with a global perspective.

With social, political, economic and ecological factors all having a direct impact on public health, it’s imperative for health professionals to see the global picture of how these determinants are affecting people’s health in their daily lives, and to learn from their international counterparts.

Today, there’s a greater awareness than ever among academia, governments and the general public alike regarding unfair and avoidable health inequalities, and the failure of health systems in reducing health disparities.

To be able to successfully address global public health issues, we need to continue to raise awareness of these issues among a wide range of people in society. This starts with providing these people with the opportunity to learn about and thoroughly understand these issues.
