Certificate Programme: Health Literacy

Health Literacy - Healthy living and studying -

The certificate programme Health Literacy: Healthy living and studying imparts fundamental knowledge and skills with regards to living a healthy life, self-regulation and health demands in social contexts and organisations. The certificate programme comprises both compulsory and elective modules. This gives room for the acquisition of basic knowledge of health science on one hand, and, on the other, the opportunity to acquaint oneself with and deepen one's knowledge of concrete subject matter, as well as the offers, strategies and methods of health-promoting agencies. Besides promoting individual health, participants are inspired to design work conditions that support good health practices. The programme thus imparts participants with practical knowledge that can be made use of even after their student life, e.g. as operating health managers at companies.
