About

The Health and International Development programme from London School of Economics and Political Science explores the key issues and inter-relationships that exist between public health, global politics, and international development. 

Overview

Many of the challenges faced by international development policy makers are related to public health issues, and this programme will provide you with the skills needed to address and overcome these challenges.

The Health and International Development programme from London School of Economics and Political Science will help you to understand the complex relationships between health and poverty/inequality in and across low and middle income countries. You will also evaluate multi-disciplinary evidence on a range of global health issues and interventions and apply this evidence to policy analysis. The experience you gain from this programme will enable you to understand how health, poverty and inequality interact. A compulsory Research Design course will equip you with the practical and theoretical principles of research design.

The MSc Health and International Development programme is flexible and enables you to shape your studies to your own needs and interests. For MSc Health and International Development students who want to gain experience of consulting work, there is a guaranteed option of doing an optional course in Consultancy in International Development for an external client. Other optional courses include: Poverty; Evaluation in Health, Development and Public Policy; African Development; Migration; Economic Development; Sexual and Reproductive Health; Gender and Social Change in the Global South; Complex Emergencies; Managing Humanitarianism; Information Communication Technologies and Socioeconomic Development; and, Advocacy, Campaigning and Grassroots Activism.

Additional extra-curricular optional activities on the MSc Health and International Development include a trip to Geneva to meet with international organisations working in the field of health, and a UK-based weekend residential programme focused on health and humanitarianism.
