Overview

Are you eager to learn about people and their concerns and emotions? How they feel alone and in relationships with other people? Would you like to know how to approach and measure a person’s well-being in a science-based way? Are you ready to find solutions in the future to help people live healthier lives and prevent premature illness? Are you ready to be engaged in protecting human rights and dealing with social issues now and in the future?

Well-being and its management is a growing industry based on evidence-based theories of healthy living and disease prevention. Knowledge of the bases of people’s well-being and how it is achieved is an important area to work on, contributing to the functioning of a society that supports human development and well-being.

The study programme focuses on the non-medical (not based on treatment by doctors) approach to health: lifestyle, attitudes, work capacity, environment, personality, habits, ethics, research, evaluation and implementation of interventions. As a target group we see students from Estonia and other countries who want to gain learning experience in the field of health and well-being in Europe. Citizens from developing countries can primarily benefit from these studies and apply the knowledge acquired to further the well-being in their country.
