Master’s in Public Health


Master’s in Public Health

The Master’s in Public Health provides the knowledge required to address issues regarding health promotion and disease prevention. The challenges posed by the current situation in the field of health in Colombia require people who are able to work with communities and understand social problem areas, and who know how to tackle national challenges and make use of the current processes of globalization in order to improve the health conditions of the population. The public health programs that are currently offered in other universities do not include these focuses on addressing health promotion and disease prevention. The Colombian health sector needs professionals who are highly qualified in these areas in order to improve health in local, departmental, national and international settings. Students of the Master’s in Public Health will acquire this knowledge, which is essential to society.

If they choose one of the advanced studies methodologies, they will learn to address and manage health issues in local, national and global settings. On the contrary, if students opt for one of the research focuses, they will learn to study health and disease as specific realities from a health science perspective, or as indirect subjects of study from a social and human sciences perspective.
