Master of Health Care/Social Services | Health Promotion

Health Promotion, YAMK

Master of Health Care/Social Services, Health Promotion 

The programme serves fields of health care, social services, and sports by producing experts in health promotion who are also prepared for managerial challenges.

A higher university of applied sciences degree produces the same competency for public offices and tasks as a higher academic degree.

The aim of the management studies is to prepare the students to take charge of a department or unit in a health or social care institution and run service processes. The management studies are free-choice electives and can consist of strategic management, management of people, and financial management. In addition, the students will examine the Finnish guidance and monitoring system used in the field of social sciences and health care.

The purpose of the Master’s thesis is to improve the skills necessary in:

  • research
  • project work
  • development work

The topic of the thesis should relate to the research and development projects conducted by the university or private and public sector businesses in Finland or in the student’s native country.

In the thesis, the student should apply existing scientific information and his/her prior research and development skills to the development processes carried out in working life.

These processes will provide the student with material to develop his/her discussion, conclusion making, reporting, and presentation skills.

Study schedule

A large portion of the studies will be completed online individually or in small groups. The online studies require intensive online group work, advanced information retrieval skills and capabilities to collaboratively construct and apply information.

The online studies consist of, for example, lectures, individual or group assignments, online meetings, discussions and argumentations.

The real-time online connection also enables individual counseling. It is practically obligatory to have an individual web connection which will allow for independent distance learning.

The contact lessons will take place in predetermined days. The number of contact days per month for the first year is 3–5 and for the second year 2–3. The studies will be implemented in Kotka and Kouvola.
