Content

This BA (Hons) Health and Social Studies course focuses on topical health issues including sociology, psychology, public health, rural health issues, health care ethics and the integration of health and social care.

In the first year you will be introduced to the many factors that influence health and wellbeing and the issues which need considered in defining what it means to be healthy. You will also develop skills in academic enquiry and writing.

The second and third years build on this knowledge and look more closely at health promotion, public health, ethics, partnership working and collaboration, and skills in research.
