MSc / Diploma Health and Society: Social Epidemiology

Qualifications for those working to improve the population's health and well-being through the understanding and application of social epidemiology.

These new Health and Society: Social Epidemiology MSc / Diploma programmes are our response to the need for trained researchers, health professionals and policy makers who are able to answer competently such questions as:

  • Why are some people healthier than others even though we have free national health care?
  • How does stress at work affect the physical health of an employee?
  • Will the current population have a better experience of ageing than/previous generations?
  • Why is social status so strongly linked to health?
  • Why does life expectancy vary according to income inequality in rich countries?
  • Does economic growth produce greater well-being?
  • How important is the area of residence for the health of its community?
