Master Programme - Public Health in Disasters

Our Master programme in Public Health in Disasters focuses on high quality education and training in the field of public health in disaster situations. It is the only Erasmus Mundus programme at Karolinska Institutet.

About the degree programme

We are one of three partners in a joint Erasmus Mundus Master degree programme, along with the Universidad de Oviedo in Spain and the University of Nicosia in Cyprus. The Master programme intends to build capacity that will reduce disaster risks and contribute to a better and more targeted public health-based relief following disasters. The programme is taught by top-level professional with personal experience of working in health care in disaster situations. The aim of the programme is to give the students plenty of both practical and theoretical training in health care in disasters and global medicine, in order to prepare them for a wide number of professional opportunities
