This interdisciplinary and novel Master’s programme is designed to develop a new generation of thinkers and policy makers that have high level skills in the critical analysis of the social and political determinants of health and its inequalities in a global context as well as abilities to identify and provide normative arguments about the underlying ethical frameworks and conflicts. The programme includes two core modules including Critical Global Health and Global Health Ethics as well as a dissertation. For more information about the MSs, click here.
