Summary

The MSc Health and International Development programme explores the key issues and inter-relationships that exist between public health, global politics, and international development.

Improving global health is an essential component of the sustainable development goals (SDGs) set by UN member states in 2015 to frame their policies over the next decade. Many of the challenges faced by international development policy makers are related to public health issues, and this programme will provide you with the skills needed to address and overcome these challenges.

The MSc Health and International Development will help you to understand the complex relationships between health and poverty/inequality in and across low and middle income countries. You will also evaluate multi-disciplinary evidence on a range of global health issues and interventions and apply this evidence to policy analysis. The experience you gain from this programme will enable you to understand how health, poverty and inequality interact.

The MSc Health and International Development programme is flexible and enables you to shape your studies to your own needs and interests. Optional courses include: Poverty; African Development; Migration; Economic Development; Sexual and Reproductive Health; Gender and Social Change in the Global South, Complex Emergencies, Managing Humanitarianism, Information Communication Technologies. The MSc Health and International Development programme includes an opportunity to do a Consultancy Project.
