Teaching in modules
The Bachelor’s and Master’s programmes are organised in modules that last for eight weeks consisting of lectures, courses, and student projects. The teaching involves an introduction and education of the most important methods and themes within public health science. These will be of high relevance and actuality, where the newest research and most relevant social problems are being worked with. Please note that in many classes the language of instruction is English.
A very important part of the teaching is the so-called PBL method (Problem Based Learning), which involves working in supervised groups. Groups typically meet once a week, and the time in-between the PBL sessions is spent on research – e.g., searching for literature on health-related topics – the outcome of which is discussed in the groups. New groups are formed at the beginning of each module.
