Course summary

Overview

The UCL Health Humanities Centre conducts world-leading interdisciplinary research on health and illness from the arts, humanities and social and historical disciplines. It benefits from UCL’s strengths in biomedicine. We offer individual research supervision from world-leading researchers and a commitment to individual attention for all students. Close to the British Library and the Wellcome Library, UCL Health Humanities Centre offers unique opportunities for graduate students.

Careers

A PhD in Health Humanities provides the basis for academic careers in the health and medical humanities, as well as in a broad spectrum of more specialised disciplines, including bioethics, the philosophy of medicine, history of medicine, medical sociology or medical anthropology. It is also a suitable preparation for careers in science and medical journalism, bioethics, healthcare policy, NGOs, museum and heritage, among others.

Employability

As part of the degree, students are given training designed especially to help enhance their employability. The Health Humanities Centre runs regular health humanities research seminars, and the Centre for Multidisciplinary and Intercultural Inquiry runs regular research training seminars. There is also a wide variety of courses available to students via the Skills Development programme, including languages, academic writing for non-native English speakers, sessions on professional and career development, getting published and research and analysis methods. Career development is also supported by UCL Careers.
