Health and Society
The master’s Health and Society studies the social and behavioural aspects of health and health promotion. Besides that, you will also look at other factors that affect health. For instance the organisation of the food system and the interaction between individuals and the physical environment.
For many centuries, the care for individuals and population health has been the domain of medical science. However, it is widely recognised that modern health problems are complex and cannot be solved only by hospitals and medical doctors. Many diseases are related to lifestyles, the social and physical environment, access to information and the opportunities for making healthy choices.
