Individual in-depth course in public health sciences

The purpose of the course is to provide the student with in-depth knowledge within a delimited field of public health sciences.

The goal is for the student to be able to answer a research question, describe and discuss important theories, methods and previous research in the chosen field. Furthermore, the student should be able to search and select relevant literature, and critically analyse and evaluate the literature. In consultation with the teacher, the student chooses a specific field for in-depth studies and identifies a research question of relevance within that field. The chosen field and research question should be discussed with the course manager. Based on a literature review, the student writes an individual essay.
