MSc Public Health for Development

Program description: 

This course equips students with skills needed to appreciate and analyse the state of public health in low- and middle-income countries and to design and evaluate actions to address public health concerns. We consider public health and the provision of health services from a multidisciplinary perspective.

Students develop public health research skills including statistics and epidemiology, and build on these to tailor a course to suit their professional needs. In the summer, students undertake a supervised research project which focuses on a Public Health question in a low- or middle-income country.

Students on this course have substantial experience of planning or implementing public health programmes, of teaching or public-health-related research and wish to hone their critical professional skills, and have been based in low- or middle-income countries for two years or more.

Duration: one year full time; part-time or split study over two years. Based in London, UK.
