Courses & curriculum 2018 - 2019
In the fall term, two core units are presented: Governing Health in a Global Context and New Biology/New Society. In parallel, and continuing through the winter term the longitudinal track Foundations of Global Health takes place. During this track, students will collaborate with students from the Thammasat, Manipal and McMaster Universities in the application of their theoretical knowledge to real-life assignments. A second 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 two elective programmes offered at Maastricht University or an elective at one of the six partner universities. The winter term will be concluded by a two-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.
