Summary

In this programme, students explore the contested terrain of global health politics in theory and practice. Combining advanced geographical analysis of pressing global health concerns with jointly-taught modules from experts in the Global Health Unit, at the QMUL Centre for Primary Care and Public Health, this degree equips a new generation of critical scholars to tackle the moral, ethical and political challenges of global health today. MRes version of this course is also available.

involves unique multi-disciplinary teaching from internationally recognised global health experts that permits students to craft a programme of study that furthers their own academic or professional interests
provides opportunities for you to enhance field-based research skills through a field trip to the self-defined global health hub in Geneva, Switzerland, including organised visits to key global health institutions and talks from leading experts.
