Queen Mary to offer unique Global Health degree
Queen Mary University of London has become one of just two UK universities to offer a BSc in Global Health – a new programme focused on the challenges and opportunities in healthcare and public health in the fast-changing, globalised 21st century.
The three-year course is led by leading public and global health experts Professor Allyson Pollock and Professor Trish Greenhalgh. It tackles important developments in politics, economics, and bioscience and how they impact on medical developments, accountability and democracy, health inequality and the distribution of medicine.
Specialist modules will focus on maternal and child health, infectious disease, the impact of climate change and health and on global governance and international law.
Graduates will be able to apply their knowledge to a wide variety of careers in health and development, with major charities, the government, NGOs, campaigning bodies or the NHS. Queen Mary’s location, close to several large hospitals, the City and Canary Wharf, offers a variety of exciting work experience opportunities.
