The Educational Process

At the beginning of your studying of Public Health at the International European University, our students will be introduced to modules and disciplines which are necessary for them to have practicum classes in the future during their educational process. Here are examples of modules on Public Health:
ETHICS OF PUBLIC HEALTH
This module introduces students to the normative foundations of public health in Poland and other countries-members of the European Union. To set the stage for the roles of public health law and ethics, students will learn about the emergence of bioethics as a normative challenge to the practice of medicine and research.
HUMAN RIGHTS
This global module helps students develop a practical idea of human rights-based approaches to public health and the ability to apply and analyze these approaches in the context of several public health challenges.
HISTORY OF PUBLIC HEALTH
This course provides students with a narrative explaining the development of the field over the past two centuries and a conceptual framework for analyzing public health practice more broadly.
QUALITATIVE FOUNDATIONS
This short module introduces students to the purposes, applications, strengths, and limitations of the qualitative methodological paradigm in public health research, including its use in conjunction with quantitative methods.
LIFE COURSE
In this course, students learn how life course approaches have emerged in public health, how health varies within and across the life course stages, and how understanding this variation improves public health policies and programs.
HEALTH ECONOMICS
The course prepares students to understand the varied components of healthcare costs, major economic theories of health insurance, models of investments in health, and health behavior and choice issues.


Every department (Biostatistics, Environmental Health Sciences, Epidemiology, Health Policy & Management, Population & Family Health, and Sociomedical Sciences) strongly emphasizes teaching and mentorship—in and out of the classroom. Accessible, engaged faculty mentors guide your academic path, open doors to research opportunities, and nurture your career goals. The practical classes in this field are a both required component and a highlight of the Public Health experience. You will work alongside public health professionals, experience the day-to-day realities of the field, and apply what you’ve learned in class to advance the cause of public health.

Career Perspectives

Public Health careers might be misunderstood because the field can be difficult to define. At one level, Public Health involves medical care provided within a community and outside a hospital setting. In a different context, Public Health can have global repercussions and refer to efforts to prevent epidemics and improve the health of entire nations.
With Public Health at the International European University being such a broad field, students typically focus their studies on a particular area. While undergraduate degrees may be specialized, this is especially true at the graduate level. Some concentrations in Public Health focus on math and statistics while others fall into the realm of social sciences. Others may result in jobs in public relations, marketing, or community outreach. The degree emphasis can also influence whether a graduate goes on to find employment within a government agency, a private firm, or a private consultant.
