Health and Well-being in the Arctic

The non-degree PhD programme in Health and Well-being in the Arctic offers specialization on Arctic health and well-being via special short courses, summer and winter schools to PhD and advanced Masters’ students.

Rapid change in livelihoods, economics, climate and environment is on-going in Northern areas. Human health and well-being is the result of the complex interaction of cultural, genetic, behavioral and environmental factors, and climate is a major, constantly changing component of that interaction. We need new researchers and experts also to the field of health and well-being.

The PhD Programme on Health and Well-being in the Arctic offers, inter alia:

  • specialized courses contributing to your PhD or Master degree;
  • networking within a tightly knit international community of researchers;
  • contacts to supervisors within the fields of research;
  • information about available grants and funding opportunities related to the fields of research.
