Definition of the field of studies

The Nursing programme imparts specialised practical, ethical, individual and empirical knowledge about nursing, one of the oldest occupations in the public health sector.


The teaching, learning and marking strategies in the master’s programme correspond to the principles of adult education; special emphasis is put on contributing knowledge and experiences that students already have. Since the contents of the courses are deliberately oriented on international and European developments it is recommended to study some modules abroad. To complete the programme an autonomous written master’s thesis must be written to prove one’s ability to work on scientific topics in a justifiable way both as regards contents and methods.
