A paradigm shift has already taken place in the nursing and health sciences in recent years. In addition to the disease orientation, the focus is also on maintaining and shaping health. The two poles “health” and “illness” are already the focus in the basic training for nursing and health sciences. The academic course offers people with professional experience in this area focused training for new professional fields in public health. By completing the course, you will be qualified take on an independent role in primary, secondary and tertiary prevention and health promotion. The potential for professional development emerges from the demographic development of the population, which brings with it an increasing need for measures for the long-term maintenance and improvement of health and quality of life.

 What makes this degree program special?

  • A focus on health promotion and prevention for different target groups and settings
  • Health literacy and empowerment of individuals, communities, families, schools, kindergartens and companies
  • New professional fields and new fields of application
  • Health research and epidemiology round out the spectrum.

The occupational field of public health is still in its infancy in Austria.

The course covers all the necessary requirements to actively help shape and develop the new professions.
