Finding answers to the key questions confronting global health policy and practice is vital. Through this programme, presented by the Global Public Health Unit, you will explore the issues that shape public health and build the knowledge and skills necessary to address them.

From the impact of globalisation and the recent development of influential global health partnerships to the complex relationships between health objectives and the trade policies of leading states, youll learn to understand, critically appraise and apply key concepts and theories within policy studies, international political economy and public health science.

Offering an innovative research-led approach, the programme draws on our interdisciplinary academic expertise.

Contents

You will complete two compulsory courses and a number of optional courses. In addition, you will undertake research training in a variety of methodologies and research techniques.

After two semesters of taught courses you will work towards an independently researched dissertation.

An official transcript and certificate (if the degree has been awarded) is required upon application. References are not required upon initial application but may be requested at a later stage in the application process.
