Universitat Rovira i Virgili

Master's programme in Medical Anthropology and Global Health

We are the only Master's programme in southern Europe specialising in Medical Anthropology. The programme provides a link between Europe, Latin America, and Africa.

This inter-university master's programme offered jointly with the Universitat de Barcelona is the continuation of the URV's own degree in the Anthropology of Medicine (1994-2000) and the official Master's programme in Medical Anthropology and International Health (2005-2014). It is considered the best Master's programme in Europe and Latin America offered in Spanish thanks to the quality of its teaching staff and the research conducted.

The programme provides students with a solid background in the theories, techniques and methodologies of Medical Anthropology, training them to translate social problems into anthropological research questions and to transform this research into practical policies in a way that helps to create social innovations and find new models of health intervention.

The programme lasts two academic years (120 ECTS credits) and is taught in blended mode. Training is provided in English, Spanish and Catalan.
