Course content

Online learning at the University of Glasgow allows you to benefit from the outstanding educational experience that we are renowned for, without having to relocate to our campus.

The One Health concept recognises the interconnectedness of human, animal and ecosystem health. A One Health approach involves applying a coordinated, collaborative, multidisciplinary and cross-sectoral approach to address potential or existing risks that originate at the animal-human-ecosystems interface. The overarching aim of One Health is to achieve optimal health for humans, animals and the ecosystem. This Masters in One Health aims to offer online, specialist teaching to students to acquire knowledge and skills required to work within a One Health framework. The 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. The programme also raises awareness of cultural and societal factors that influence how One Health approaches are translated into practice.

  • The flexible, online delivery of this programme by world researchers and clinicians allows you to study from anywhere across the globe.
  • Glasgow employs some of the most prominent UK researchers in the One Health framework, giving you access to up-to-date expertise.

  • Our teaching is research-led. The courses have been developed to reflect the latest academic research and up-to-date challenges of One Health.
  • During a course, from week to week you will interact with your teachers and fellow students using online discussion boards. Your teachers will direct and observe the discussion and respond to student questions about the course content.
  • You will have the opportunity to collaborate on a research project under the supervision of a member of academic staff or an external supervisor.
  • The One Health concept is gaining momentum worldwide and an early adoption thereof is putting the University of Glasgow at the forefront of teaching and learning within the One Health framework.
