What will I learn?

Develop a research-led approach to the study of Global Public Health and Policy, and gain the key research skills you will need for doctoral-level study. Your studies will have an emphasis on the social determinants of health; a focus on the interface between politics and policy; a concern for social justice; and a stress upon primary care acting as a platform for effective public health action.

  • Gain all the skills you need to move on to a PhD
  • Undertake analysis which crosses disciplines, including sociology, anthropology, economics, law, geography and public health medicine
  • Benefit from strong links to the NHS, local authorities, policymakers and leading international figures in global health
  • Go on to work in health policy and other fields of public health and public policy with a global perspective

Facilities

At Queen Mary you will have access to a number of advanced facilities. These include:

  • the Blizard Building, which has state of-the-art facilities for students and staff including open-plan research laboratories, office space, a 400-seater lecture theatre and a café, and several seminar rooms
  • a Learning Resources Centre, open around the clock, with 200 networked PCs solely for the use of postgraduate students

Career paths

The course is designed for students who want to progress on to a PhD. You could end up working in health and public policy at local, national, or international level, as well as in governmental and international bodies and NGOs.

Our students have gone on to further postgraduate research both with the Global Public Health Unit at Queen Mary and other universities.
