Public Health 

In Sweden and across Europe, the complex relationship between migration and existing healthcare structures is an ongoing challenge. Through contemporary case studies, investigate migrants’ health needs and evaluate their access to care. 

  • Analyze the challenges and opportunities that migration presents to the Swedish healthcare system 
  • Travel with your classmates and DIS faculty on course-integrated study tours to compare and contrast Swedish and European approaches to migration and health 
  • Engage in debate on the burning issues surrounding integration of asylum seekers, refugees, and other migrant groups and its impact on health care and other social services in Europe 

This program is right for you if you study public health, global health, political science, sociology, or a similar discipline.
