  • 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.
