Earliest start date
The programme prepares you to participate in community-based health promotion and disease prevention research with a focus mainly on middle and low-income societies. You are encouraged to use research findings to improve the quality and effectiveness of community health action.
One of the main strengths of the programme is the international classroom where students from all over the world can learn from each other and share their knowledge, perspectives and experience. The programme also includes fieldwork in Norway or abroad. Students learn to work independently while developing their own research projects, collecting and analyzing their field data, and finally writing their theses. Support for preparation for this research component is provided through courses that cover quantitative and qualitative research methods, assesing relevant literature, project planning, research ethics, and academic writing.
