Health & Society

Become a leader in building healthy communities - both locally and globally

Health & Society Overview

Health & Society students explore the social, political and economic factors that shape the health of individuals and populations.

With a focus on health equity and public health, Health & Society students study and research ways to prevent disease, promote good health, and improve the quality of the healthcare system using a blend of social science and health sciences approaches.
