This recently re-developed MSc aims to enable students to explore the central role that is played by migration and culture within global health processes and migration and health policy and practice. It will develop students’ empirical and theoretical understandings of the range of health, wellness and healthcare concerns that are experienced by migrants and their families and how these occur across interconnected development contexts of ‘origin’, ‘destination’, ‘return’ and ‘transit’ countries. In completing the MSc, students’ will have developed the skills and knowledge that are needed to work with migrant community groups, health support groups, advocacy organisations, non-governmental and intergovernmental organisations, as well as government agencies and trade unions. In doing so, it will prepare them for employment within the fields of community organising, migration support services, migration and health policy, migration policy, public health and humanitarian policy and practice at the local, regional, national and international levels. Within these fields, students will be able to apply academic learning on migration and health to respond to problems and opportunities related to migrants' social, cultural and political identities, social welfare, humanitarian needs, and their legal, citizenship and rights-based concerns, especially those that intersect with health and healthcare.

Students will also have developed research-based skills to work in research-related posts, while some graduates may continue their academic trajectory by developing funding proposals to pursue doctoral study in the Centre for Primary Care & Public Health, within Queen Mary more broadly, or beyond.

The Migration, Culture and Global Health MSc is part of a wider programme of study in global health within the Barts and The London School of Medicine and Dentistry.
