Course overview

This single honours degree programme enables students to understand and critically analyse the broad range of issues and concepts which affect the health of individuals, groups and communities locally, nationally and internationally. With the ever-changing challenges of our societies there is a greater need to understand our communities in order to promote healthier lifestyles that improve public health and address issues concerning obesity, diabetes and mental health. Health and wellbeing is a specialism that is growing in demand across all areas of corporate business, the public sector (including councils and other agencies) and the charitable sector.
