Work, Health and Career

Are you interested in a combination of occupational healthcare, organization/policy science and health education? Would you like to advise organisations and policymakers about the health and sustainable employability of employees? And would you like to help people stay healthy and productive throughout their career, also those with chronic diseases and other disabilities? Then you should consider getting a master’s in Work, Health and Career. The programme combines theories of health and labour participation with practical training, enabling you to formulate and implement health strategies and interventions. You’ll also learn how you can evaluate these strategies and interventions. As of the academic year 2022/2023 the programme will be updated in order to stay aligned with contemporary challenges in work, health and career and the changing world of work. Upon graduation, you’ll have all the knowledge and skills you need for a career in occupational health consultancy, management, policy-making and research.
