Global Health and Development

Global health explores public health issues through a variety of different subject backgrounds.

Why does a disease still exist when a vaccine has been available for years? How do geography and law affect a community’s health? We look for answers by studying politics, economics, epidemiology, society, medicine, and the social determinants of health. This then expands to take in broad health themes such as maternal health, the impact of climate change, and child nutrition.

My lecturers are engaging and care deeply about their subjects and being in a smaller department means I can build strong professional relationships and receive detailed individual feedback and support.
