You begin to specialise in the second year of your studies by choosing one of the four tracks. Your choice should be based not only on your interests, but also on the master’s programme you intend to follow and your career plans. The study advisors of the faculty can help you make an appropriate choice.
Biology and Health
Biology and Health is focused on how nutrition, exercise and the environment effect the development of diseases. You learn how biological systems and structures try to keep the body healthy, and how various external factors can impair and unsettle bodily functions. This requires a basic biological knowledge as well as epidemiology, behavioural sciences and medicine. You explore issues like:
- Is the incidence of certain health problems rising or dropping?
- What are the reasons and what are the implications for this?
- What can we do to prevent certain problems and what is the best way to study them?
