International Public Health (MPH)

Review this Program


Sweden: Umea


The Master's Programme in Public Health includes a number of courses on global health conditions, on health systems analysis, on the relations between social conditions and health and on the methods that you need to carry out public health work. The programme provides public health practitioners and researchers with the skills required to understand, and ultimately help improve and maintain the health status of the population.


Studying on the programme means an active search for knowledge, problem solving and critical analyses based on a scientific approach. The working methods vary between individual study work, group work, seminars and lectures. In the evaluations we have done, students have expressed great satisfaction with the cooperation between students from a different educational and cultural background.
A student on the programme has of course a guaranteed enrolment in all of the programme courses. Some of the courses build on one another and should therefore be taken in a specific order. This is an international programme with students coming from many countries. All teaching is done in English.
