Introduction

The Master’s Programme in Public Health Science is for those who are interested in health and public health. Our programme provides students with the skills they need to work strategically and practically with public health, both nationally and internationally. You will learn the individual and structural factors that impact health and what conditions ensure individuals have good health and health equality. After completing the programme, you will have a range of career opportunities and can continue on to doctoral studies.

Are you interested in health and improving public health? Do you want to make a difference and are driven by the idea of ensuring health equality? Then you should apply to the Master’s Programme in Public Health Science. Our students are trained to be able to work with public health, both nationally and internationally. We offer an international study environment where you will meet other students from around the world.

Why are there such large differences in health among different groups of people? What are the relevant factors that influence health and how can we improve the lives of people? These are some of the public health challenges we are facing. A wide-ranging and interdisciplinary perspective is needed to reduce differences between groups and achieve long-term and equitable improvements to public health. There is a need for trained public health scientists to study these issues and to formulate and evaluate public health efforts.

The Master’s Programme in Public Health Science teaches students the central theories and methods of the field. This two-year programme is taught in English. The goal of the programme is to give you the tools needed to be able to plan, conduct and evaluate public health work and to work to reduce systematic differences in health in the population.

You will also learn about epidemiology, social epidemiology, quantitative and qualitative research methods and health economics theories and methods. We offer both an introductory and advanced course in health economics.
