This MA in Chinese Health and Humanity course offered at the University College London (UCL) offers an interdisciplinary approach to health in China including history of medicine in China, population studies, the built and natural environment, climate change, law and medical ethics, public health and policymaking. Intensive training in academic English and translation for publication online is provided.
This programme aims to train the next generation of professionals in the interdisciplinary approaches and skills necessary for understanding and improving population and individual health in China and internationally.
It will be invaluable for all those intending to work in professions with an interest in Chinese health including: health systems and reform, the health environment, integrated health, in NGOs and multilateral organisations as policymakers, administrators, and workers in the field. It will also prepare students to work in art and media where Chinese health issues are concerned.
Graduates from the MA will be well-prepared to take advantage of job opportunities that are also available to graduates from the UCL Institute for Global Health and UCL Anthropology, but with the added advantage of expertise in China: health administration policy and consultancy, health law, in bilateral and multiliteral organisations, NGOs, built and natural environment, climate change, health research in China and the UK.
The programme also aims to create new expertise in China's health culture that will open up job opportunities as China begins a rapid programme of developing private healthcare partnerships.
