Finding sustainable solutions to global health problems is urgent in an increasingly globalised and unequal world. Health is an indicator of inequality and needs to be addressed in a broader perspective.
The master’s programme in global health places a priority on improving health and achieving health equity for all people worldwide, with a special focus on health problems in low- and middle-income countries.
Our main thematic areas of research are:
- maternal and child health
- communicable diseases and non-communicable diseases
- oral sciences.
With this education you can contribute in finding interdisciplinary innovative solutions in public health administration, NGOs and higher education.
At the Centre for International Health (CIH), we try to foster an informal atmosphere with close ties between staff and students. As a student here, you will work in an international and vibrant environment, with colleagues and fellow students from all over the world.
The master’s degree in global health will qualify for positions in academia, in international organizations and in public administration. The possibilities are particularly good for candidates from low and middle-income countries, both at national universities, on international projects, in international NGOs and health leadership. Our Norwegian candidates are eligible for positions in health education at university college level, in NGOs and increasingly in health services for asylum seekers and refugees.
Our alumni have found employment in very different settings, but the one thing they highlight is how the program equipped them with a broad range of working skills and a solid theoretical foundation. This makes them valuable employees and colleagues.
92 percent of alumni with a master’s degree from the Faculty of Medicine say that they have found relevant work within two years of graduating.
