Bachelor programme

During this minor you will be introduced to the key concepts from behavioural and health economics, with examples related to health and healthcare. We will apply these concepts to i) understand health behaviour, both rational and non-rational, and ii) explore what this means for individuals, organisations and governments aiming to promote healthier behaviour (e.g., through nudging, boosting, incentives and regulation). Using these insights, you will select an actual health issue of your interest (e.g., excessive drinking, smartphone use in traffic), design an intervention, and reflect on it critically.

This minor is open to incoming exchange students.

Rationing healthcare is as contentious as it is inevitable. Healthcare resources are ever growing but nonetheless remain limited and insufficient to meet all demands and needs of populations. In this minor, you will learn about the efficiency and equity aspects of rationing healthcare, and international differences in doing so. This includes topics like waiting lists, limiting the basic benefits package, solidarity, and health behaviour. Special attention will be given to links to behavioural economics and illustrations will include expensive medicines and lifestyle interventions. After this minor, students will be acquainted with different forms of rationing and priority setting, mainly from an economic perspective.

This minor is open to incoming exchange students.
