About

Do you want to know more about what influences people's health? Public health sciences encompass many different perspectives. Our courses on public health and its determinants are firmly rooted in the social sciences. This Public Health Sciences - Individual Perspectives on Public Health programme is offered at Stockholm University.

Overview

If you study with us, you will learn about the distribution of (poor) health across different groups in society; what it looks like today but also what it looked like in the past. You will learn more about social and societal structures and how these, through the interplay with individual characteristics, may influence people's habits and living conditions.

We go deeper into the ways in which health and disease develop throughout the life course, from childhood to old age. You will also get to know more about how public health policy and practice has developed over time, at both the regional and global levels, as well as gain insights into different measures taken to prevent disease and promote health.

The Master's programme in public health sciences at Stockholm University offers two tracks during the third term. The track Public Health Sciences - Individual Perspectives on Public Health includes courses that reflect psychological topics such as stress, sleep, behaviours, as well as public health practice related to prevention, intervention, and health promotion.

Career opportunities

As a public health scientist, you can work with municipalities, regions, governmental agencies, organisations, and companies, both in Sweden and internationally.

The programme will prepare for postgraduate education and also provide qualification to work with e.g. investigations and policy measures at the national, regional, and local levels, practical public health work within governmental agencies and in the private sector, as well as issues relating to health care international aid.

  • Public health sciences
