What will I learn?

Global attitudes to public health have never been more significant. Migration, inequality, and the global economy have changed how we think about health and illness. As a result, tackling public health issues now needs to be viewed on a global scale. This course offers you a rich and varied environment to explore the complex public health issues relevant to a global audience. Anyone with an undergraduate degree and/or relevant work experience is encouraged to apply. Whether you want to further your knowledge in your existing field or you're looking for a qualification to start a new career, this course can be tailored to suit your needs. You can study a generic MSc in Global Public Health or take one of four endorsed routes: in Child and Maternal Health, Communicable and Non-communicable Diseases, Ethics and Human Rights, or Migration, Culture and Health.

As a Global Public Health graduate, you will be able to explore careers in international and national non-governmental organisations and charities that work around the globe. It can lead to roles such as Community Development, Health Promoter, Epidemiologist, Policy Officer, International Programme Consultant or Global Programme Manager. The course can help you pursue careers in government departments both in and outside the UK. It can lead to senior roles in public health such as Public Health Specialist, Public Health Researcher, Analyst or Strategist, Health Policy Researcher, Service Manager or Director.
