Course description

Online MSc One Health

In the face of escalating global healthcare issues, we must take an integrated approach to health and consider humans, animals, plants and the environment as one connected whole.

The World Health Organization, the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations, the World Organization for Animal Health and other organizations endorse the concept of One Health. In order to achieve better health outcomes, One Health links ideas, research and policies from multiple sectors.

Our online MSc in One Health offers you a chance to be part of this exciting new field. Whether you're from a medical, environmental, economic or social science background, at our world-class institution, we will give you the necessary knowledge, understanding and skills to work in a One Health context and help improve health for all.

Our online One Health MSc program seeks to explore an integrative approach to human, veterinary and ecological health, recognizing the importance of interdisciplinary collaborations and the interconnectedness of public health, environmental issues, veterinary and human medicine.

Throughout the distance learning program, we also raise awareness of cultural and societal factors that influence how One Health approaches are translated into practice.
