The Master’s Programme in Public Health includes a number of courses on global health conditions, on health systems analysis, on the relations between social conditions and health and on the methods that you need to carry out public health work. The programme provides public health practitioners and researchers with the skills required to understand, and ultimately help improve and maintain the health status of the population.
By nature, Public Health is multidisciplinary, drawing on social sciences and medicine, using qualitative and quantitative methods to identify and assess specific health risks before designing and implementing effective public health strategies. Traditionally drawing on the fields of microbiology, entomology, parasitology and the management and control of infectious diseases, in today’s globalised world we are increasingly facing new public health challenges involving causation and prevention of chronic diseases.
The educational programme for the Master’s programme in Public Health (120 higher education credits) ordinarily consists of four terms (2 years), which corresponds to courses of a total of 120 higher education credits. This educational programme presumes that one-half has been completed at an earlier date, which means that the programme consists of 60 higher education credits.
A number of scholarships are available for non-European students.
The studies are to be characterized by a high degree of independence, an active search for knowledge, problem solving and critical analyses and evaluations based on a scientific approach. The working methods vary between individual study work, group work, seminars and lectures. A student on the programme has of course a guaranteed enrolment in all of the programme courses. Some of the courses build on one another and should therefore be taken in a specific order. The course syllabuses state the prerequisite requirements for each course. This is an international programme with students coming from many countries. All teaching is done in English.
The competence that this programme gives can be used both in public and private organisations. Many graduates will work in the public sector in local and state institutions – from e.g. hospitals to the Ministry of Health. The positions may be as e.g. strategists, evaluators and analysts. Graduates finding jobs in non-profit organizations may be working with e.g. health advocacy, policy, or research for organizations such as the Red Cross. Other graduates will go to the private sector working e.g. for pharmaceutical companies or for health insurance companies. A future university career in research is another path.
