Koulutuksen sisältö

The effects of global phenomena are transforming the way we work for health both at national and international levels.

Our programme offers a unique opportunity to study the intertwined disciplines of public and global health. Students will be equipped with the necessary expertise, skills and tools to work in the complex setting of contemporary and emerging health challenges. All courses are firmly grounded in international research and have a strong focus on transferring this knowledge into practice.

Our vision is for students to gain a firm grounding in the core competencies of public and global health in order to form “two degrees in one”. The public health component corresponds to an MPH. We also want to equip our graduates with practical skills and tools for their future working life: an internship or a work placement is a part of the programme, and real-life cases and assignments are studied in the courses.

In our view, global health is not only about “developing countries”. Global phenomena affect well-being and health in both the global South and the global North, transforming the way we work for health on both national and international levels. It is our mission to advocate for health and promote conditions in which people can be healthy.
