Overview

The Online One Health programme seeks to explore an integrative approach to human, veterinary and ecological health, recognising the importance of interdisciplinary collaborations and the interconnectedness of public health, environmental issues, veterinary and human medicine.

Throughout the distance learning programme, we also raise awareness of cultural and societal factors that influence how One Health approaches are translated into practice.

The University of Glasgow is renowned for its world-changing research and teaching in One Health. Our research is vibrant and includes projects that aim to improve surveillance of anthrax in Africa, that work towards the elimination of rabies in Tanzania and that investigate Lyme disease on Uist. It is this ongoing research that inspires the innovative, multinational ideas running throughout our multidisciplinary programme.

Fuelled by the latest research-led knowledge, this online programme is perfect for busy professionals looking to diversify or expand into careers where you need to understand the big picture. One Health graduates go on to work for governments and international bodies like the United Nations, as well as pharmaceutical organisations and scientific journals.
