Master thesis in public health sciences

The aim of the course is to independently write a master thesis, by applying the knowledge and skills acquired during previous courses in the programme. In the first part of the course, the student chooses a research question and identifies a data material, analytical method, and literature of relevance for the research question. This work is summarised in a proposal which is to be discussed at a seminar. In the second part of the course, the student finishes the master thesis, which includes formulation of the research problem, overview of relevant literature, acquisition and analysis of data, as well as interpretation and discussion of the results. The master theses are discussed at seminars.

  • Course structure

    The teaching will be based on supervision, lectures, and group seminars. Both parts of the course end with an examination seminar during which the student’s proposal and master thesis, respectively, is presented, evaluated, and discussed.

    The course will be taught in English.

    More detailed information will be distributed to all registered students through Athena.
