Beginning in 2022-23, the master of science course in public health, applied research methods in global health (MSSP2MC), will be replaced by the specialised master’s course in public health, analysis and evaluation of international health policies, programmes and systems (SPIN2MC).
The specialised master’s course in public health, analysis and evaluation of international health policies, programmes and systems (SPIN2MC) is intended for doctors, paramedics, sociologists, anthropologists, economists, managers and political scientists with a master’s degree. Classes take place during the day, in Brussels on the Woluwe campus (UCLouvain) and on the Erasmus campus (ULB). The specific objective of this specialisation is to provide students with the skills to analyse and evaluate health policies, programmes and systems.
Enrol in this course if you want to:
- be involved in technical support for health systems;
- develop an academic career in public health;
- exercise a leadership function in different fields of public health and health care organisation;
- contribute to research conducted by governments, NGOs, and health care institutions.
The specialised master’s course will impart expertise through course units on:
- areas of analysis and evaluation in public health;
- approaches to analysis and evaluation;
- specific methods and tools;
- an integrative project to apply the skills acquired in other course units and to acquire transversal skills as well as specific expertise such as communication, ethics in analysis and evaluation, critical review of the literature, etc.
This specialised master’s course is aimed at professionals involved in technical support for health systems, future academics, health programme managers, etc.

The course is organised jointly with ULB (Université Libre de Bruxelles). It takes place on the premises of both universities, in Brussels: Woluwe campus (UCLouvain) and the Erasmus campus (ULB).
This is a daytime schedule course that lasts for a minimum of one year, longer for reduced schedules or programmes.
