Erasmus Mundus Masters Courses
European Public Health Master
Duration: 2 years
This Master`s Course is an integrated two-year Master`s course for all those who wish to embark on a career in public health. It is intended to provide students with the analytical tools and conceptual knowledge required of decision-makers in public health. Students will acquire the skills to carry out various professional public health functions at local, regional, national, European and international levels, in both the public and the private sectors. A cross-disciplinary approach to public health issues will be taken, combining the expertise of the participating institutions with the distinct professional environments of the various countries.
The first year of the curriculum covers basic public health issues. It can be attended at Sheffield University (UK) or the Andalusian School of Public Health (Spain). During the second year, students specialise in a particular subject. The seven specialisations offered draw on the strengths of the participating institutions of the consortium. The University of Copenhagen (Denmark) offers training in Quantitative assessment in Public Health, while the Andalusian School of Public Health (Spain) specialises in Health Management and Quality Improvement. The Jagiellonian University of Cracow (Poland) teaches Health Economics and financial management as well as Social and Health Protection, the EHESP School of Public Health (France) explores Environmental and Occupational Health, and the University of Rennes 1 (France) introduces its students to Law, Health and Ethics.
Regardless of their chosen specialisation, each student also carries out research work and a practical placement, and undergoes a viva before a panel of international experts. In addition, two modules will bring together all the students, in France, at the end of each academic year.
The language of instruction depends on the mobility track chosen by each student: English only, French and English, Spanish, French and English, or Spanish and English. All institutions within the consortium will offer practical language courses and Civilisation/Culture courses.
Seventy highly-qualified teachers and researchers are involved in the Course and each year forty students enrol for the programme.
The final qualification consists of a double Master`s degree awarded by the institutions in which the student has studied. This Master`s degree is fully recognised by all the partners within the consortium and by the participating countries. The criteria for eligibility are a Bachelor`s degree and proficiency in the languages suitable for the mobility combination chosen. All eligible applications will be examined by a transnational Admission Committee.
