Teaching and students

We organise and lecture on a number of courses related to humanitarian crises and public health both at LSHTM and through external partners.


Within the LSHTM master’s programmes, the following crises-related MSc modules are available to registered students and also to a small number of external students:

Crises-related teaching is also available in the MSc modules, 'Global Mental Health' (distance learning) and 'Designing Disease Control Programmes' (intensive) and the Professional Diploma in Tropical Nursing .

Annual Student Showcase

We are delighted to announce that students from the 2020-21 cohort will be presenting their MSc summer projects to new students and those with an interest in humanitarian crises. Topics will be varied, but all focus on crisis-related research.


We have also developed a number of free external courses intended to support the development of practitioners, policy-makers, and the public in addressing health in humanitarian crises.

The use of epidemiological tools in conflict-affected populations: A free online course developed by Centre members, intended for non-epidemiologists and policy-makers operating in humanitarian crises.
