Freie Universität to Offer Master’s Program in Public Health Starting in the Fall of 2010

№ 74/2010 from Mar 31, 2010

The health system in most countries is permanently in need of adjustment, and it is not always obvious, which reform approaches hold most promise. Freie Universität Berlin is now offering university graduates a master’s program in public health. The four-semester program focuses on prevention and health promotion. Its aim is to prepare students to respond adequately to the growing challenges in the health system and to learn how to improve the general conditions and quality of health services. The application deadline for the 2010 fall/winter semester is April 30.

The master’s program officially begins on October 15, 2010. The application prerequisite is a B.A. or B.S. degree in a health-related discipline. The seminars and lectures are held Tuesdays and Thursdays from 3 to 8 p.m. and in all-day courses on four weekends. The interdisciplinary classes cover political, ethical, economic, and psychological aspects of health. After passing the final exam, the students are awarded a Master of Public Health degree.
