Institute for Global Health


Masters in Global Health and Development

In rich and poor countries alike, the gross inequalities in people’s health are not simply a product of their individual choices. They are determined by people’s place in society and the environment in which they find themselves.

Today’s global health challenges require a coordinated response from different sectors and academic disciplines. They demand a new approach to research and teaching, which explores health within its broader development context.

Our MSc in Global Health & Development addresses issues that are both important for today’s developing countries and common to the whole world. Climate change, economic crisis and poor governance, for example, have profound health effects. Policymakers, health professionals and others concerned with global health need the intellectual tools to understand them.

Our MSc in Global Health & Development will challenge you to understand the complex forces that shape health worldwide, from the household to the global level.
