Project summary

Complex health problems require solutions that transcend geography and draw on international and multidisciplinary collaboration to develop innovative responses. The MSc in Global Health at the School of Social Science at Southampton University is a multidisciplinary programme that equips students with the skills to understand and respond to global health challenges.  

The course is taught by research-active academic experts from multidisciplinary backgrounds. It includes core modules which provide students with an understanding of key issues and concepts in transnational health. It has a strong quantitative component, which covers statistical and epidemiological methods. Students can tailor their programme to their interests, choosing from optional modules from the School of Social Science, including social statistics, demography and gerontology, geography and law, as well as modules from medicine and health sciences. 

While not exclusively designed for those planning a research career, many former students have continued on this path and work for academic institutions or governmental research departments.
