Master of Science in Public Health

Health plays an important role in most people's lives

The study programme aims at attracting students with a broad educational background obtained either in Denmark or abroad. This is the main reason why the modules of the master programme are taught in English.

The purpose of the programme is to provide students with scientifically based knowledge and useful competencies in relation to the field of public health science. At the same time the students will be able to analyse and evaluate within certain fields. These competencies will be obtained through practical and theoretical work in the field of health promotion in a given population.



The programme aims at laying the conceptual basis by increasing the students’ competencies with respect to:

  • building and applying advanced epidemiological knowledge of essential health factors 
  • assessing current research and implementing analyses on the state of health of populations 
  • applying a wide selection of communication techniques and tools in connection with primary and secondary prevention, health promotion initiatives as well as public health-related assignments
  • evaluating implementations, performances and results of prevention and promotion measures
  • analysing structures and institutional changes of health systems
  • setting up theoretical solutions for concrete political and administrative problems in the field of health

 

Students are able to specialise within one of the following four main tracks: Health Promotion, Global Health, Risk Research or Health Economics and Management.

Master of Science in Public Health: Programme Structure

The Master of Science in Public Health programme consists of four semesters (two years). The Master’s programme is organised in quarters. The quarters consist of four annual teaching periods of each eight weeks that end with an exam period in continuation of a teaching period.

The first semester is comprised of a general introduction to public health theories, tools and methods, including modules on biostatistics and health policy.

The second semester comprises two compulsory modules: Evaluation and Advanced Epidemiology. The remaining time will be devoted to modules belonging to a chosen specialisation. Currently four specialisations are offered: Health Promotion, Global Health, Risk Research and Health Economics and Management.

On the third semester students can choose from modules within the four specialisation tracks as well as other electives. The third semester also offers the possibility of an internship or studies abroad.

The fourth semester is devoted to the work on the Master’s Thesis, which can be carried out individually or by two students together. In addition to the formal teacher supervision, the students are offered master seminars giving them the possibilities to discuss the exposition, research design, methods and empirical investigation.
