The M.A. in Health and Society at University College Cork is aimed at graduates from a broad range of disciplines in the sciences and humanities and is designed to provide a unique and critical analysis of contemporary discourses and issues from an individual, societal and global perspective.
This course is about health, but not exclusively healthcare, as health is both a medical and a social issue. We ask you to explore health from a variety of different angles and to this end bring together health experts from a vast range of disciplines and colleges, including medicine, epidemiology, philosophy, economics, sociology, social policy, and law.
This programme prepare graduates for a range of careers in health policy and advocacy, in government, media, NGOs, and teaching. Our ambition is to work with you and provide a new generation of national and international health policymakers who understand how to integrate foundational knowledge of epidemiology, economics, ethics, and scientific methods.
