Global Health (MSc)

About the programme


The Global Health programme at Sahlgrenska Academy is a two-year Master´s programme corresponding to 120 higher education credits. Admission is once a year with an intake of approximately 20 students. The programme starts once a year, in August (autumn).

This cross disciplinary Master's Programme provides students with the broad range of competencies that are necessary for promoting global health equality and equity. The intersections between global and local health are influenced by a myriad of social and biomedical dynamics that need to be taken into consideration simultaneously in order for students, scholars, policy- and decisionmakers to fully understand all of the issues at hand.

The courses therefore present and condense major global health challenges and their governance from the perspectives of biomedicine, public health, international relations, development economics, social work and anthropology into actionable steps. With frontline research as the point of departure, the program’s pedagogy aims to encourage students to think critically and work independently. It equips students with practical skills and tools needed for mapping, analyzing and solving complex global health problems.
