This course is for you who wishes to gain greater knowledge about concepts and theories within global health.

The course contains five themes, prepares you for PhD studies and has an epidemiological approach. We analyze global health based on a number of different perspectives such as diversity, power, gender and ethics and train our ability to critically discuss important issues on the basis of theories and research findings and often based on examples concerning women’s health.

The teaching is totally internet-based and is mainly founded on the student’s own work with help from recorded lectures, study materials and assignments to generate more in-depth learning.

In Kalmar, Linnaeus University is located in the city centre. Universitetskajen is entirely newly-built and located just next to the sea. Here you become part of a creative knowledge environment.

The city centre is also where most students live. Everything is available within a ten-minute bicycle ride, regardless of whether you want to take a swim in the sea, study, do some shopping, or work out. Historical buildings and cobblestone streets give charm to the city. When it is sunny, the area next to Kalmar Castle’s moat is filled with studying and sunbathing students. Student life is a natural part of Kalmar. This is where your dream of the future begins!
