STUDY SOCIAL POLICY RELATED TO PUBLIC HEALTH AND WELLBEING
Do you ever wonder how societal changes and individual lifestyles affect health? Or how social policies related to (for example) sustainability, work, and care influence people’s wellbeing? Maybe you’ve considered how public health is changing as a result of increasing cultural diversity and social inequality. Or thought about possible ways to improve public health. Perhaps you’ve read about unexpected effects of existing social policies on people’s lives and wellbeing.
If you are interested in studying such issues, this one-year Master's programme is for you. You will develop knowledge about interdisciplinary theoretical perspectives on social policy and interventions, which will help you gain in-depth insight into the methodology and skills needed to research social policy and intervention issues in the domain of health and wellbeing, in particular related to work, care and participation.

  • (Youth) unemployment
