This Infectious Disease Control Master’s degree from Södertörn University provides a methodological toolbox for disease control; it includes epidemiology, statistics, GIS and meta-analysis, as well as practical, hands-on experience.


Disease prevention plays a vital role in improving international health and welfare, including areas such as human rights, justice, and gender equality.

This unique one-year Master’s in Infectious Disease Control from Södertörn University focuses on the prevention and control of old, new and emerging diseases, spanning the medical, environmental, health science and socioeconomic aspects of infectious disease control. 

What you'll study

You will examine the biological mechanisms behind infectious diseases from a global perspective, focusing on prevention, diagnostics and therapy, as well as analysing local and global societal and environmental factors and the role of climate change in the emergence and re-emergence of infectious diseases.

One consequence of globalisation is that events in one part of the world can have a rapid impact on multiple global locations. The emergence of epidemics is a growing and potentially worldwide problem, especially for developing countries that have limited resources. This degree therefore also examines how human rights, justice and gender equality are central issues in the control and spread of disease, affecting areas such as the production and equal distribution of vaccines and antiviral HIV therapy.

Studying this programme will bring increasing awareness of all aspects of sustainable development, as well as skills that are valuable for decision-making in all areas of your life and as a world citizen.
