Information
The programme trains you to understand health, illness and the body from a social science perspective. You will look at contemporary global and local health problems, as well as key topics in social science. It enables you to deepen your knowledge of anthropology and sociology, while at the same time acquiring a specialisation in a health-related topic. If you have a medical or psychological sciences background, you will acquire further training in social science and you will learn to critically and reflexively integrate this training with your earlier experience. If you have a social science background, you will have the opportunity to further sharpen your analytical tools and acquire a specialisation in the field of health. The programme combines coursework and a thesis project based on your own individual fieldwork. You will design and organise your own research project, on a medical anthropological or sociological theme of your interest, with the guidance of our international academic staff.
