The MSc in Global Health is a 2-year programme taught in English.
The first year consists of six compulsory courses and includes mandatory country exposure course in a low- or middle-income country in either Europe or Africa.
The year is divided into four blocks, with two courses running simultaneously in each block, except for block 3 which is made up entirely of the country exposure course.
The second year is a year of specialisation and you are free to plan and compose the year as you like within one of four different study tracks.
You can choose between elective courses in Denmark or abroad and/or you can do an internship in a relevant company or organisation. The only requirement is that you should obtain a total of 60 ETCS and finalise your study with a master's thesis.
