Are you interested in improving health and well-being of people all around the world? Are you curious about what global health is? Do you want to learn about the biggest health challenges, and how they are affecting peace and prosperity? Are you interested in using your skills to develop solutions that can improve health, decrease poverty and make a positive impact on the lives of people all over the world? If so, NTNU's multidisciplinary Master of Science (MSc) in Global Health is the right choice for you.
What makes the MSc programme at NTNU different from other similar programmes of study is the emphasis on innovation. In addition to the traditional areas of global health (e.g. epidemiology, health systems), we also focus on the role of innovation and technology.
The programme engages students in various projects to understand the role of technology to improve global health and identify areas of immediate need and long-term growth. The concept of innovation is not only limited to technology, but social and financial innovation are also discussed throughout the course of the programme. Our MSc programme reflects traditional areas of global health including reproductive health, nutrition, but also reflects current issues of high socio-cultural importance such as human rights, domestic violence and environmental factors influencing health.
