Its main goal is to enable the students to improve health of specific population groups and the population as a whole through :
* the designing, planning, implementation, advising and assessment of health prevention and promotion programmes.
* the management of health and social services and establishments.
It is designed to provide students with methods, analytical tools and conceptual knowledge required to understand public health issues.
It is based on the acquisition of academic knowledge and basic savoir-faire related to public health as well as all the necessary skills for the various functions that the students, as future public health professionals, will embrace at the local level, regional, national, European or international, in the public or the private sectors.
EUROPUBHEALTH : a two year masters course
EUROPUBHEALTH is a two year Erasmus Mundus Masters Course (120 ECTS)
In first year, the curriculum covers the basic issues of public health. It is offered in Spain or United Kingdom.
In second year, the student specialises in a particular subject.
Europubhealth offers 7 specialisations based on the fields of excellence of the six member universities of the consortium.
During this specialisation year, students carry out research work (dissertation) and a practical placement.
Each student selects one specialisation and attends the courses in a country that must be different from year 1 (Denmark, Poland, Spain or France).
At the end of each academic year of the Master, two integration modules bring together all Europubhealth students for international and cross disciplinary work at the end of each academic year.
* Integration module 1: “Global Dimensions of Public Health” (3 weeks in EHESP Rennes – France).
* Integration module 2 : “Interspecialisation – Public Health Project Management” (3 weeks in EHESP Rennes – France).
Depending on the university background, the specialisation chosen and the language skills of the students, they follow one training pathway among the 13 different following possibilities.
* Denmark : University of Copenhagen (Copenhagen)
* Spain : Andalusian School of Public Health – University of Granada (Granada)
* Poland : Jagiellonian University of Krakow (Krakow)
* France : University of Rennes 1 (Rennes)
* United Kingdom : University of Sheffield (Sheffield)
* France : EHESP School of Public Health (EHESP) (Rennes)
* USA : Columbia University – Mailman School of Public Health (New-York)
The application procedure and selection process are the same for all candidates, regardless of whether they come from European or third countries.
Interdisciplinary by nature, Europubhealth is open to students with diverse but complementary profiles drawn from medical sciences (including doctors, nurses, pharmacists) or social science backgrounds (including, for example, sociology, economics, psychology, anthropology, geography, political sciences, law).
