MSc in Global Health This innovative and successful programme, run by the Centre for Global Health, aims to provide graduates with a greater appreciation of the global interconnectedness of health problems and to equip them with a range of analytical and methodological skills to address the challenges of global health. Designed for individuals from a wide range of disciplines and professions, the programme adopts a multidisciplinary approach that integrates health and social science perspectives to analyse, design, implement and evaluate health programmes within a global context. Global health is an attempt to address health problems and issues that transcend national boundaries, and are informed by the circumstances and experiences of countries in differing contexts. The underlying assumption is that the world’s health problems are shared and are best tackled by cooperative action and the sharing of innovative solutions. The MSc in Global Health augments traditional approaches to public and international health by bringing together perspectives and insights from a range of health and social sciences in understanding and resolving the challenges of global health. These problems may arise, for example, in relief and development programmes in developing countries; in conflict and post-conflict situations; with refugees, asylum seekers and economic migrants; with tourists and business travellers. All countries give rise to inequities in health, wealth, education and human rights, and the interconnectedness of these issues will be a major theme running throughout the course. The course also lays emphasis on ‘local' experiences that resonates globally in the case of Ireland. These... [-]

MSc in Molecular Medicine

There has been an enormous growth in our understanding of how basic biological processes take place at a molecular level in recent years. This has been exemplified most notably by the sequencing of the human genome. These developments are continuing at an explosive pace and with them comes an ever sharper focus on the essential molecular mechanisms underlying the normal functioning of cells, tissues and organisms themselves. Molecular Medicine is a new field that exploits advances in molecular and cellular biology to characterise how normal cellular processes either fail, or are subverted, in disease. Increasingly, medical practitioners, professionals and researchers in the health and life sciences need to be able to understand and evaluate advances in molecular medicine in order to keep abreast with developments in their fields. The M.Sc. in Molecular Medicine programme offers a comprehensive and thoroughly up to date overview of the area, provided by experts in their fields.
