The Lund University Master of Public Health programme is an international environment where about 30 nationalities study together from all continents of the world.


In order to abolish health inequalities, global partnerships and the effective spread of knowledge are essential. We must therefore educate future public health experts who have a broad, interdisciplinary perspective and the will to participate in this global effort.

In the Master of Public Health programme from Lund University, you will learn from your fellow students’ experiences – as well as from the faculty’s vast international experience of research and public health work in the field. As one student expressed it, “The class and teaching are a microcosm of the global context we’ll face in work life."

Career prospects 

Alumni of the Master’s programme in Public Health are currently employed at a variety of top governing institutions such as national ministries of health, UNICEF, Global Fund, WHO and various NGOs.
