MSc Migration, Culture and Global Health Policy

Course Description

Migration and health policy at Queen Mary

This masters in Migration, Culture and Global Health Policy focuses on public health and global health issues related to migrant communities across the globe. It addresses a factor of major importance for those involved in public health and health policy, namely the health of migrants. It considers the nature of migrant and diaspora communities and the ways that health within these communities is related to social, political, economic, and cultural factors. It assesses the important role that culture plays in determining health outcomes in migration by focusing on several ethnographies of migrant communities. It explores the range of health problems faced by migrant communities in host countries. Theoretical themes of relevance to migration and global health will be explored in detail by considering international case studies of mental health, maternal and child health, HIV/AIDS, diabetes, and risk perception and lifestyle.
