About the programme
The Safe & Sound international master semester is tailored to provide students with knowledge and information about how adverse and adaptive childhood experiences influence health and sustainable development. Children need nurturing care and protection from harm to grow and thrive. Knowledge is power. It is our responsibility to create, share and spread knowledge in empowering ways.
This semester provides students with knowledge and experience with cross-cultural and cross-disciplinary aspects of child development, adverse and adaptive conditions of childhood, and the impact on health and well-being. The program will support and supplement existing study programs in terms of 1) increased internationalization and awareness of the global agendas for health and sustainable development, 2) facilitate a joint child and family focus between the master programs in social work with children and youth, environmental psychology and public health, and 3) provide opportunities for a limited number of students to learn and practice abroad.
It consists of three interlinked 10 ECTS courses, each held at different institutions in Norway and Vietnam. An extended version of course 2 (15 ECTS) is specifically tailored to students at INN University, whom will not parttake in the exchange semester.
