M.Sc. in Health History
Established in 2008, this degree can be taken full-time or part-time. It provides training for students planning to progress to a doctoral research degree, but it is also ideal for those with a general interest in health and history, for those in the health professions keen to explore the origins of their disciplines, and for those in education roles looking for fresh ways to deliver teaching and learning related to health.
For further information, contact Prof Matt Smith, the director of the course.
