Population and Health Pathway

Master’s Progression Pathway

The Population and Health pathway offers an excellent opportunity for students to gain a thorough understanding of the principles and dimensions of population and health with a focus on demographic, social and spatial aspects of health. An integral feature of this pathway is the use of real data to understand the complex and challenging health issues in high, low and middle income countries. This pathway is linked to our quantitative multidisciplinary research-oriented MSc in Global Health and MSc Demography taught by research-active academics with international reputations.
