Course content

The UCL MSc in Health Economics and Decision Science spans the disciplines of economics, statistics and epidemiology - training students in applied problems, while providing the theoretical foundations expected of an outstanding UCL postgraduate degree. Strong links to industry and a severe shortage of skills in this area will ensure that graduates of this program are highly employable.

UCL offers a unique, multidisciplinary environment in which to study health economics and decision science. The teaching team comprises economists, statisticians, epidemiologists, mathematicians and public health doctors among others. As a world-leading university, we research, publish and consult in the topics we teach. Our strong links to industry, policy and academia enhance the relevance of our teaching and the employment opportunities of our graduates.
