On completion of this Health and Wellbeing course, you will:
- understand the social science underpinning the development of effective interventions, strategies, and policies aimed at sustainable improvements in health and wellbeing, and reducing physical and psychological health inequalities
- have an interdisciplinary understanding of the links between social, biological and environmental factors and individual health behaviours, choices, and outcomes
- understand contemporary issues related to modifiable disease risk behaviours, and the determinants and correlates of these lifestyle behaviours across the lifespan
- understand the interdisciplinary skills and processes required to translate scientific research into practical health and well-being applications
Working under the supervision of our academic staff, you will be able to pursue a line of study and research that is relevant to your own interests. You will be encouraged to review and critically evaluate approaches to research and their application, and identify and investigate your own original research questions.
Recognition of professional qualifications
As well as being recognised as a higher academic qualification, a number of our degrees are also accredited by professional bodies in the United Kingdom. An accredited degree from University of Bath may entitle you to work in a specific profession within the UK, and abroad (where there are reciprocating arrangements with professional bodies in other countries).
The requirements to practise a profession vary from country to country. If you wish to practise your profession outside the United Kingdom, you are advised to confirm that the UK professional qualification you seek is valid in the country in which you are intending to work.
