Summary

The MSc Global Health Policy draws on LSE's world leading strengths in politics and economics to analyse a range of global health policy issues. Engaging with both quantitative and qualitative methodologies, you will gain insights into a range of approaches to global health as you learn crucial skills in policy making, health economics, sociology, politics, demography and more.

Health policy globally is changing, owing to great interconnection and shared health concerns. It requires a new generation of inspired health policy professionals equipped to handle the specific challenges working in this space from the global levels of Geneva to the field in low and middle income countries. This programme offers both levels of analysis.

You will be taught by a world-renowned multi-disciplinary faculty passionate about global health who are at the forefront of research into global health policy. Similarly, students on the programme come from diverse academic backgrounds, ranging from medical doctors to anthropologists to those that have just finished their undergraduate studies. The level of experience of students is quite varied, and this makes for a dynamic and stimulating learning environment. Our students are culturally diverse with the vast majority of students coming from outside the UK.

You will graduate from LSE with both a conceptual understanding of the big issues in global health, and tangible skills for a career in global health. As core modules you will study the institutions, actors and politics in global health policy and learn how to develop healthcare policies specifically for low and middle income countries. You will also examine the role of economics in health policy and different ways of financing healthcare.

The programme further offers a wide variety of courses which gives you the flexibility to customise your curriculum so you can pursue what most interests you and suits your background, expertise, and goals, whether that be global policy issues or health concerns in low and middle income countries or something in between. Beyond this, students are also offered short courses in epidemiology and project management to supplement their studies.
