This programme addresses the impacts of globalisation on public health with a strong focus on how health policy is increasingly being shaped beyond the nation state by international organisations and by transnational corporations. The programme examines the complex relationships between health objectives and the trade policies of leading states. It addresses and critiques the expanded roles of the commercial sector and civil society, the recent development of influential global health "partnerships" such as the Global Fund against AIDS, tuberculosis and malaria, and the emergence of the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.
Learning Outcomes On completion of this programme you will be able to understand, critically appraise and apply key concepts and theories within policy studies, international political economy and public health science with specific reference to social and economic determinants of population health status; public health policy norms; concepts of epidemiology and research methods; and processes and institutions of public policy-making.
You will also develop the skills to:
* apply social science perspectives to public health questions;
* assess the changing context of public health policy formulation;
* analyse diverse source materials and apply to public health questions;
* articulate your own conception of core challenges confronting public health;
* engage in public health advocacy;
* work across disciplinary boundaries.
Teaching is by lectures, seminars, group work and guided independent study. Students will be assessed through coursework, written examination and dissertation. Each student is allocated a member of academic staff to provide supervision through all stages in the development of the dissertation.
No specific academic or professional background is required but applicants should normally have at least a second-class honours degree or equivalent in social science, science, medicine, nursing or other related discipline. Eligibility from beyond the UK will be based on the National Academic Recognition Information Centre scheme.
Applications are also welcomed on the basis of appropriate professional experience or technical qualifications. Applicants who are non-graduates will be required to write an essay and to demonstrate recent professional study or research involvement or publications.
