Public health - promising future

The Master 's Degree Programme in Public Health (MPH) is offered by the Institute of Public Health and Clinical Nutrition, in collaboration with the Department of Nursing Science. We educate experts for public health related fields and sectors in regional and global contexts. Our graduates have worked as epidemiologists, researchers, administrators, managers, field workers, health educators, and entrepreneurs around the world.

The MPH is a 2-year programme of 120 ECTS credits. It is primarily contact teaching with elements of online learning. We incorporate modern teaching methodologies according to the UEF `s aims, which we are very proud of.

The MPH provides a strong foundation for understanding public health and related research, and, depending on the choice of track, issues of global health, public health nutrition, epidemiology, or health promotion in nursing science. The four tracks, from which students choose one after the first semester are:

Globe, Culture and Public Health
Epidemiology
Public Health Nutrition

Health Promotion in Nursing Science (available to students starting from 2017)

Global health is the way of the future, and here at UEF we are at the centre of creating solutions for it.
