There is an increasing recognition that global health crises demand solutions that move beyond established public health responses to include more comprehensive solutions to the long-term developmental needs of local communities. This new programme offers students the chance to blend established health and development approaches to tackle the contested contemporary terrains of development and global health politics. Combining the latest research in these fields, we encourage students to challenge conventional ways of approaching questions of health and development, while also considering alternative ways of promoting and securing advances in human well-being.

This programme:
- provides students with a detailed understanding of emerging debates and agendas within development and global health policy and practice
- encourages students to examine the intersections between questions of development and global health, using a critical geographical approach to problematise established theories, practices and policies
- provides students with training and one-to-one tailored supervision as they develop independent desk-based and field research through a dissertation and optional fieldwork.

In the wake of the 'global' economic crisis, this innovative new masters programme offers students the chance to explore alternative future possibilities for international development in theory and practice. Read more

Overview

In the wake of the 'global' economic crisis, this innovative new masters programme offers students the chance to explore alternative future possibilities for international development in theory and practice. Combining cutting-edge thinking on development, economic geography, political economy, labour studies and social change, we will help you explore the multiple connections (and disconnections) between countries of the Global North and Global South.

At the heart of this alternative development agenda, you will be encouraged to challenge the common use of Western historical experiences and categories as the universal templates against which the rest of the world is measured and found lacking. Instead, you will reconsider the diversity of populations, economies, urban centres, and governance practices in the Global South on their own terms - and in so doing, step outside the conventional lenses of mainstream development theory and the international policies they inform.

Our Global Development Futures MA is delivered through intensive small group teaching and close engagement with leading academics in the School of Geography's world-leading Economy, Development and Social Justice research theme.

Why study at QMUL Geography?

- Research excellence: Joining the School of Geography places you alongside academics that are actively developing and challenging contemporary thinking in this field. Almost 80 per cent of the School’s research outputs (books and articles) are rated as world-leading (4*) or internationally excellent (3*) placing it 5th in the UK for this measure (REF2014)
- Employability: Students completing this programme will be well-placed to enter governmental, non-governmental organisations, civil society, and academic research roles.
- Field-based research: Students receive tailored research supervision and training suitable to their individual research interests. They are also given the opportunity to participate in an optional seven-day field trip to Mumbai, India, to further develop field research skills.
- Twilight teaching: Some optional modules will include evening classes (5-7pm) and intensive teaching periods will condense required attendance. Small group teaching will provide students the unique opportunity to work closely with leading academics in this field of study.
- Capital location: We're a School that cares about the world beyond the university, working with a range of community groups, artists, cultural and heritage institutions and policy makers, particularly here in east London.

**NEW from Sept 2017**

Overview

We live in a world of remarkable health challenges: from emerging infections and non-communicable diseases to weak health systems and uneven access to medicines. In meeting these challenges, it is abundantly clear that improving global health requires a critical understanding of the complex interplay between health, politics and social and spatial inequalities in wealth and power. In this new programme, students explore the contested terrain of global health politics in theory and practice. Combining advanced geographical analysis of pressing global health concerns with jointly-taught modules from experts in the Global Health Unit, at the QMUL Centre for Primary Care and Public Health, this degree equips a new generation of critical scholars to tackle the moral, ethical and political challenges of global health today.

This programme:
- provides you with a detailed understanding of global health debates, agendas, politics and practices in a variety of geographical and historical contexts
- encourages you to examine pressing global health challenges in light of the significant conceptual, methodological and empirical contributions of critical geographical scholarship
- involves unique multi-disciplinary teaching from internationally recognised global health experts that permits students to craft a programme of study that furthers their own academic or professional interests.

The new Postcolonial and Global Literatures pathway offers students the opportunity to explore classic and contemporary writings in English and in translation. Students on the pathway will be able to think further about literatures in postcolonial and global contexts, while studying in the heart of London’s East End with its long history of migration.

The pathway’s core module, ‘Peripheral Modernities’, will give students a thorough grounding in concepts of modernity, globalisation, and culture as viewed from the global peripheries. Students can also choose from a wide variety of optional modules, whether studying literatures from the Caribbean, Africa, South Asia and its diasporas, or the East End of London; or exploring interdisciplinary fields like translation studies, cartography, or book history in postcolonial and global contexts.

This is a broad and interdisciplinary pathway, which nevertheless provides a specialized programme of study ideal for those wishing to go on to pursue PhD study in related fields. The programme also engages with the critical present and provides a wide range of academic and transferable skills allowing graduates to pursue a wide range of career pathways, including teaching, publishing, or working within the cultural industries.

On this pathway, you will:
- Be introduced to a wide range of postcolonial literatures, in English and in translation
- Study in London’s East End, with its rich history of waves of migration
- Gain a greater understanding of how contemporary issues surrounding immigration are refracted in recent literature
- Be taught by leading experts in the fields of postcolonial studies and global literatures
- Develop vital skills in argumentation, analysis, and independent inquiry.
