Students new to social science develop an understanding of social science approaches to experiences of illness and health, gaining skills required in anthropological field research and analysis. For students with previous social science training, we focus on dimensions particular to medical anthropology (e.g. diversity issues in clinical practice, therapeutic narratives, critical medical anthropology, traditional medical systems, mental health).
What this course will give you
Our approach to Medical Anthropology at University College London (UCL) is broad and open-minded, encompassing applied work, analysis of cultural diversity issues in clinical practice, therapeutic narratives, critical medical anthropology, ageing, infectious disease, global health, studies of traditional medical systems and ritual healing, psychological anthropology, mental health, and biosocial approaches.
UCL Anthropology was the first in the UK to integrate biological and social anthropology with material culture into a broad-based conception of the discipline. UCL Medical Anthropology became the fourth major section of the department, integrating interpretive, critical and applied Medical Anthropology perspectives.
