While the food supply is directly related to a healthy, individual development, health care globally faces extensive challenges that go beyond this context.

This includes - in addition to the increase in infectious diseases worldwide - changes in the spectrum of so-called civilizational diseases, which in many ways have causal connections to social development. Nowadays these can be perceived in a global development and can only be adequately assessed with regard to prevention, diagnostics and therapy. A specific perspective on global health not only enables a better handling of the epidemiology of diseases, but also serves as a starting point for the interdisciplinary discussion about the development of individual and common living spaces and life opportunities.

The master’s programme “Global Food, Nutrition and Health” directly aims to teach interdisciplinary skills to address these and similar issues and questions as well as to find answers and solutions to these global challenges.
