Courses & curriculum 2017 - 2018
In the fall term two core units will be presented: “New Biosciences /New Society” and “Governing Health in a Global Context”. In parallel, and continuing through the winter term the longitudinal tracks “Foundations of Global Health and “Global Health Seminar Series” take place. During this track students will collaborate with students from the Thammasat, Manipal and McMaster University in the application of their theoretical knowledge to real-life assignments. A third longitudinal track will address advanced methodology and statistics and issues pertaining to research in an international, intercultural setting.
During the winter term students may choose one of three elective programmes offered at Maastricht University or an elective at one of the four partner universities. The winter term will be concluded by a two- or three week “Learning symposium”.
In the summer term students will collect data, analyse these data and write their master's thesis. Maintaining this approach, students may also opt to base their master's thesis on a thorough literature review.
