Master's Programme (60 credits) in Nordic Welfare, 60 credits

This is a Master’s Programme for anyone who is interested in how societal issues are connected to welfare, health and lifestyle. The one-year programme prepares you for both research and work in an international context.

Based on the Nordic model, you will study issues relating to lifestyle and well­being, participation, multiculturalism, social security, civil society, the welfare society’s new challenges like globalisation and digitalisation, as well as issues that are re­ lated to the importance of work for the individual and society.

The Master’s Programme in Nordic Welfare is interdiscipli­nary with Health and Lifestyle as the main field. The studies prepare you for both research and work in an international context. You are studying with students from other parts of the world and thus have the opportunity to create your own international contacts.
The programme also has a strong con­nection to work and organisation through case studies.
