The UNSW Master of Global Health is a one-year full-time degree, offered through the School of Population Health.
The program takes an interdisciplinary approach to learning about global health. With an underpinning in public health, the program examines disease control, comparative analysis of global health systems, policy design, and public health research across a wide range of populations and countries.
In addition, the program examines the power and politics in global health, key global health debates and philosophical stances, and addresses contested issues around globalisation and health, decolonisation, health and human rights, the environment, urban expansion and population growth.
The Master of Global Health aims to give graduates the tools to study, research and ultimately improve the human health of communities. The degree brings together methodologies such as epidemiology, data, policy and medical service design to provide an international perspective on the health and illnesses of populations in all stages of development.
