The programme begins with a course in scientific theory and scientific method. In this course, you will start developing a plan for your future master's thesis, which will be completed during the programme. Later, you will take courses that focus on occupation and health, social and ecological sustainability, occupational therapy and science, health promotion and community development, and evidence-based practice in occupational therapy. Most of the time, you are given the opportunity to tailor parts of your education by, for example, choosing a specific target group, and formulate your research questions based on interest.
