UdA launches in September a master’s degree in Health

The University of Andorra will launch a new master’s degree in Health next academic year 2024-2025. The Master of Health is a second-cycle university degree that aims to train professionals in how to design strategies to promote, maintain and recover the population’s health and to prevent unhealthy behaviours and habits. The course trains nursing professionals in advanced practice, developing specific skills to diagnose, prescribe and provide specialist care.

The study programme enables students to take three specialisations:

  • Minor in Health Promotion, which trains students so that they can offer advice for improving health and design, implement and lead health-related prevention programmes and health promotion projects. This minor is for anyone with a first-cycle university degree in the field of health.
  • Minor in Advanced Mental Health Nursing Practice, which trains students so that they can make diagnoses as nurses, issue prescriptions and provide specialist care for people with mental health conditions, as well as designing specific programmes to promote mental health. This minor is for anyone with a first-cycle university degree in nursing.
  • Minor in Advanced Chronic Condition Nursing Practice, which trains students so that they can make diagnoses as nurses, issue prescriptions and provide specialist care for people with chronic conditions, as well as designing specific programmes to promote health through all stages of life and active ageing. This minor is for anyone with a first-cycle university degree in nursing.

The study programme is made up of 120 European credits, 15 of which correspond to internships. This is a blended programme that adapts to each student’s needs, so that they can combine their studies with work.

The career opportunities this master’s degree offers are related to society’s changing health needs, population ageing, the emergence of new diseases and the rise in chronic and mental health conditions. This course also provides access to doctoral studies, thus helping to promote research in the field of health.

The Master of Health is in the process of being accredited by the Higher Education Quality Agency of Andorra (AQUA, by its acronym in Catalan) and is expected to begin in September 2024.
