This course will provide critical training for those pursuing careers in humanitarian relief, public health, policy making, advocacy and research. It will be particularly useful for those who already have experience in programmatic work, but who are keen to develop their academic skills and understanding of healthcare in humanitarian settings.
The programme takes an innovative approach to teaching global health by providing an interdisciplinary foundation in health and social sciences before giving students the opportunity to specialise in conflict and disaster settings. This applied approach will enable students to consider theoretical and ethical debates, and assess their relevance for the realities of fieldwork using case studies. Drawing on the Centre’s experience in programmatic work, students will have the opportunity to learn from professionals and experts in the field, and share their own knowledge and experiences of working in development and humanitarian settings.
