Course content

Our intercalated BSc in Global Public Health gives students already taking a medical degree the chance to achieve an additional degree in this specialist field in just one year.

Technology and medical science promise improvements to human health. But today’s global health crises and growing inequality remind us that the root causes of good health lie in political, social, legal and economic systems.

We’ll equip you with the knowledge and analytical skills to understand the causes of ill health and consider better policy options. You’ll develop an evidence base from which to advocate on behalf of your patients and communities.

You’ll be taught by academics who are leaders in their field – public health, law, sociology, geography, economics, social policy and clinical medicine – and influential in policy developments in the UK and internationally.

Our teaching emphasises research methods and analytical techniques. Option modules allow you to specialise in areas including gender and sexuality, health systems, and globalisation.
