Public Health

We live in a time with a focus on health and the food we eat and even though there are more and more growing fitness, there are also more and more living unhealthy and we have learned that there has come an obesity epidemic in the country.

There has also been much focus on ecology and there are many people who swear to paleomad and Stone Age bread. At the same time there is also a resistance against these trends from people who think it's crap in a horn lantern.

One theory many people live by is: As long as it is not proven, then it is not true. This is where you can make a difference and find the truth, prove it and present it so that people are informed about their health. Then it's up to them whether they will do something about it.

Public Health is the program where you get to work with health on a global level. The perspective of the study is that you must consider the entire health of the population through the institutions (hospitals, clinics, social services, etc.) That exist in our society, as well as the applicable law (moral and ethical) in the field.

Study elements of the bachelor's program includes public health theories and methods that you need to solve problems related to a population's health for example. in relation to obesity and overweight problems, smoke-free policies in public places, alcohol policy in relation to young people and more. Take classes in many disciplines such. Health and living conditions in Denmark, Economics, Statistics, epidemiological methods, Sociology. Ethics and Philosophy of Science and other interesting subjects.

There is a constant need to find solutions to our lifestyle and way of life when we must adapt it to the development of society. And this particular development impact on public health plays a major role as it will be your job to find out.
