Health Promotion

Are you interested in nutrition, sport and health?
Do you want to help others feel good?

Students at the Health Promotion programme learn how to advise and promote projects in the field of health, nutrition and physical activity. The education gives them a broad knowledge about health promotion directed at individuals, groups and organizations. As a health promotor you can, for example, plan and implement wellness work at workplaces, inspiring lifestyle changes and give personal advice on diet and physical activity.

After completing the three-year programme, the students can continue their studies at advanced level and subsequently at the graduate level.

The students choose between two specializations, sport science and food and nutrition. All the students take courses in public health sciences, health pedagogy, health psychology, and health communication.

The Sport Science specialization

The Food and Nutrition specialization

For students who are interested in food, nutrition and physical activity from a health perspective. The programme is mainly focused on how to teach, provide information and advice as well as talk about diet and physical activity. Nutrition is a key element.
