Master

Global Health

 In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, Maastricht University will be lenient with master’s applicants who will not be able to obtain their bachelor's degree before the end of August 2020. Check the requirements >

--------------------------------

Do you want to help minimise the global impact of epidemic diseases or illnesses that spread after a natural disaster? Or are you driven to address the worldwide inequities in access to healthcare? Then Global Health could be just the programme for you. It provides you with the theoretical foundation, methodology and tools you need to function effectively in this challenging field. You’ll also work on assignments with students from other countries, giving you a unique interdisciplinary, cross-cultural learning experience. After you’ve graduated, you can pursue a career as a health professional in an international setting. You could, for example, become a policymaker, a health advocate or a social entrepreneur.
