Course summary

About this course
The course uses a multi-disciplinary approach to investigate the world from a social science perspective, uniting the areas of health, wellbeing and social science. You will explore health from socio-cultural and global perspectives, as well as from a political, environmental and social policy view. As you learn you will develop skill-sets employers value, such as understanding and working in diverse social settings, critical thinking, report writing, presenting and research methods. On this flexible programme, you can choose from a variety of optional modules in your second and third years of study, allowing you to tailor the programme to suit your own interests, working to your strengths and fine-tuning your career path. In your final year, you will work on a large project, exploring a specific area of interest to yourself and your career plans. You will be able to tailor your dissertation to a particular area of interest, such as gender, diversity, ethnicity, ageing population, mental health, wellbeing, youth, and community.
