Program Description

Course Overview

Public Health studies now reach beyond local and national dimensions, people and communities across the world require global solutions. The MSc Global Public Health course follows the tagline ‘think global, act local’ and responds to the UK public health agenda within the global public health context. As a student on this programme, you will join students from diverse academic and professional backgrounds to take an interdisciplinary approach to study global public health, which will inform your knowledge and understanding about complex factors operating at local, national and international levels affecting the health and wellbeing of the population locally and globally.

The central aspects of the course include creating an environment for interdisciplinary and interprofessional learning through embedding research and scholarship within the programme, enhancing engagement with public health and wider health industry stakeholders and integrating the development of employability skills throughout the course.
