Your future

Careers in public health or research

Because the focus at Master’s level is on analytical and critical thinking, it provides a good foundation for your professional life, whether inside or outside science. This degree is also excellent preparation for further studies at doctoral level. It provides you with a high level of both quantitative and qualitative methodological competence, as well as skills in GIS, statistical analysis and meta-analysis that are in demand in the field.

Potential workplaces are found in the health sector, nationally and internationally, in organisations such as public health authorities, local government or aid organisations. Graduates from this degree are employed at the UN and WHO, as well as at the European Centre for Disease Control, the Swedish strategic programme against antibiotic resistance (STRAMA) and other public health authorities in Sweden.
