The first year of the programme consists of six mandatory courses (60 ECTS credits). In the third term the students choose any three courses of the four elective courses offered, or go on exchange abroad. The fourth term is allocated to thesis writing.
The Master's thesis (30 ECTS credits) should be written on a topic related to the elective courses chosen by the student.
The purpose of the thesis is to prepare for planning, developing and presenting a scientific project in the field of public health. The thesis can be an empirical study based on data to which the student has been given access, or data that the student has collected. It can also be a literature review or a project of more theoretical character.
Please note that attendance to all the lectures and seminars in the Master Public Health courses is mandatory.
