Do you want to study the changing world and the social and cultural influences on health, wellbeing and society?

This course gives you the key transferable academic skills needed to pursue a career in the wellbeing, health, social and voluntary sectors.

What will this course cover?

The course uses a multi-disciplinary approach to investigate the social world from a social science perspective, joining the areas of health, wellbeing, sport and social science together.

You will explore health from socio-cultural and global perspectives, as well as those from a political, environmental and social policy view.
