Course Summary

This MRes is a pre-doctoral training programme taught in conjunction with the London Interdisciplinary Social Science Doctoral Training Partnership (LISS DTP) and is an approved pathway for ESRC 1+3 PhD studentship funding – ideal for those seeking to work in a research-related role. MRes programmes in the School of Geography have the same structure as the MA/MSc equivalents, but include two compulsory modules: 'Geographical Thought and Practice' and ‘Introduction to Social Science 2: Quantitative Methods and Data’.

This programme: provides you with a detailed understanding of global health debates, agendas, politics and practices in a variety of geographical and historical contexts; encourages you to examine pressing global health challenges in light of the significant conceptual, methodological and empirical contributions of critical geographical scholarship; involves unique multi-disciplinary teaching from internationally recognised global health experts that permits students to craft a programme of study that furthers their own academic or professional interests; provides opportunities for you to enhance field-based research skills through a field trip to the self-defined global health hub in Geneva, Switzerland, including organised visits to key global health institutions and talks from leading experts. Assessment on each of the modules is through a variety of coursework assignments ranging from extended essays to reviews.
