Population and Health

The course meets a public demand to systematically address the problems posed by population changes and health dynamics in the contemporary world. The programme will provide students with a deep understanding of population and health trends and competing explanations, both in developed and developing countries. The distinct feature of the course is that the programme covers the issues of population and health from an interdisciplinary perspective, including geographic, demographic, sociological, environmental and epidemiological approaches to the topics. The programme also provides a solid training in methods to analyse and project population dynamics and health patterns. Training in demographic, longitudinal and spatial analysis (including GIS) will equip students with the means to investigate past and contemporary trends and project future developments.

Entry requirements

Candidates with professional qualifications and/or relevant experience who have degrees in non-cognate disciplines or with lower degree results are invited to apply; their individual circumstances will be considered by the Programme Director.
