Course content

In the context of growing globalisation, migration and rapid social change, a global approach to health has never been more important. Global threats come in many forms, such as the emergence of new infectious diseases, the rising incidence of obesity and the risks posed by climate change. In an increasingly interdependent world these complex problems require solutions that transcend geographic boundaries and draw on international and multidisciplinary collaboration to develop innovative responses. The MSc offers the opportunity to explore these and many other issues of relevance and develop the skills to analyse and contribute to effective solutions.

A key feature of the MSc is the breadth of optional modules from demography, medicine, economics, geography, gerontology and statistics, which allows students to tailor their programme to individual needs and interests.
