MSc Global and Planetary Health (L6AK07)

The MSc in Global and Planetary Health offers a unique opportunity to work at the interface between human health, environmental sustainability and social justice.  This exciting course is noteworthy for the innovative perspectives it offers.  As well as the three core modules that are taught in Anthropology, you will be able to choose modules from seven other departments within the University. Our aim is to train a new generation of scholars willing and able to face the challenges involved in building an inclusive, sustainable, healthy and multi-species future for the all who live in the world.

"We know that things like runaway climate change, reliance on fossil fuels and increasing conflict over scarce water resources are having a real impact on human health, particularly in the poorest communities. If you're interested in tackling these challenges we'd love you to join us!"

“Planetary health is a fast emerging area of research and practice, with rapidly growing opportunities in this specialist field in both academic and community contexts. There is also a rapidly increasing demand and opportunities for planetary health specialisation within a broad range of other fields in the commercial and not-for-profit sector. This programme builds upon the existing research and teaching strengths of Durham University”.
