BASc(GHD) Programme (JUPAS Code: JS6250)

COVID-19 shows us more than ever that global health and development issues are interlinked with every aspect of our lives. Decisions made now will have huge health, political, economic and social impact. To develop solutions to COVID-19 and other complex challenges we have to reframe our approach and think from a broad and multidisciplinary perspective.

The Bachelor of Arts and Sciences in Global Health and Development [BASc(GHD)] is a ground-breaking interdisciplinary programme that prepares students for a range of careers in an increasingly complex and globalised world. Click here to find out more.
