Why study Global Health?

Why not take the opportunity to study international health in an international setting in Norway? The course lasts for 3 months and is a part of the Bachelor program in Nursing.

The course addresses current major global health problems and threats, as well as global and local public health strategies to meet these challanges. The overall aim of the course is to gain knowledge and increased understanding of the political, socio-economic, environmental and cultural factors that influence patterns of ill health and their remediation.
