About the MSc Programme

The MSc Global Health Policy programme draws on LSE's expertise in politics and economics to analyse a range of global health issues and policy responses affecting low and middle income states and global discussions.

The programme combines analysis of global health issues through a range of theoretical and applied approaches to address mechanisms behind global health activity, as well as offering students tangible qualitative and quantitative skills for careers in global health including economic evaluation, policy analysis and systematic evidence review.

The MSc Global Health is delivered by the Department of Health Policy. The Department carries out impactful health and social care research, influences and informs national and global policy-making and implementation. You will have the opportunity to engage with the UK's top academics, policy-makers and professionals in international health. You will be taught by leading UK and European academics in the areas of health economics, management and policy. LSE Health is one of the Department’s associated research centres and one of the world’s most highly rated research centres in international health policy and health economics, both for its research and institutional links.

On this programme, you will take four half-unit compulsory courses, and you are required to complete a 6,000 word dissertation. In addition, you will also choose from our wide variety of courses to the value of one and a half units, which gives you the flexibility to customise your curriculum so that you can pursue the areas that most interest you and suit your background, experience and goals.

Upon graduation, you will leave LSE with the high-level knowledge of global health, a conceptual understanding of the big issues in global health, and a range of skills to help you master new challenges and expand your choices of careers. This programme will prepare you for careers in research, advisory, consulting and leadership roles in the public, private and non-profit sector.
