Course Introduction

This is a truly multidisciplinary programme, and exposes students to a genuinely broad education. Imagine studying economics, geography, law, sociology, politics, epidemiology, and anthropology, in one degree! In practice this means that you will study, for instance, maternal and child health through an economic, political, and socio'cultural lens. With diverse expertise, our staff will equip you with the knowledge and skills to improve wellbeing and reduce health inequalities across the world. The teaching you will receive will draw on research from around the world and importantly will emphasise critical thinking, social theory, and quantitative and qualitative methods. You will come to understand the important role of governments and the place of public services and partnerships in reducing health inequalities, improving health infrastructure and access to services, and fostering health and well'being. Students will gain an understanding of the key political, social, economic, clinical, and population health concerns around global health, and develop insight into community, country, regional, and international opportunities for health improvement and development.
