Course content

This course combines expertise from development studies and public health to help you engage with the challenges of health and international development in today’s complex world. The course is jointly run by the Department of Geography and the School of Health and Related Research (ScHARR).

You'll develop a critical understanding of international development theories and debates in the context of public health research and practice.

There’s an emphasis on applying your learning to complex challenges in the real world. You'll develop professional skills, carry out hands-on research during an overseas field class, and you'll complete a work placement-based dissertation that links academic theory with public health and international development practice.

Our teaching involves industry and sector specialists, which means you can make connections and contacts with a global network of expertise beyond the University. On this course you'll develop the practical skills you need to work within development and health organisations around the world.
