Well-being and its management is a growing industry based on evidence-based theories of healthy living and disease prevention. Knowledge of the bases of people's well-being and how it is achieved is an important area to work on, contributing to the functioning of a society that supports human development and well-being.
Why should you come to study?
- Health behaviour and well-being counsellors, e.g. institutions providing health and wellness services, either using an individual or a community-based approach.
- Leaders in a variety of areas (ensuring organisational well-being and team functioning), implementing their everyday work in a broader context of well-being.
- Specialists in planning, implementing and evaluating community-based interventions for public institution staff well-being, provided that in addition to a Master's degree they have acquired a speciality in a field that supports the launch and management of public activities or programmes (public administration, recreation, etc.).
The science-based design of environments that help improve workplace wellness and workplace happiness is increasingly being addressed in Estonia and across Europe; in the same way we can design wellness in teams or in groups of other people working together in the community. On a service basis, it is possible to share recent experience (both in Estonia and in the EU) with companies in other countries where a modern workplace culture is emerging and knowledge of working in a multicultural work environment needs improvement.
As the speciality is forward-looking, it is not directly related to existing routine jobs, however, some possible jobs include:
