Dr Felicity Thomas, Programme Director, MA Cultures and Environments of Health, announces a path-breaking MA with four full bursaries, one of which is designated for low-income applicants from Black or other Minority Ethnic backgrounds:

The Wellcome Centre for Culture and Environments of Health is delighted to announce our path-breaking MA in Cultures and Environments of Health. This Masters course draws together health humanities, social sciences, and public health methodologies, offering postgraduate students a unique and transdisciplinary grounding in the cultural and environmental contexts of health and illness. It will also equip them with the critical skills required in creating and communicating diverse evidence in a range of academic, public, and policy contexts. Please follow this link for further information on the MA, including how to apply: https://bit.ly/2Nqntx3.

We are delighted to be able to offer up to four full bursaries for our MA programme, one of which will be specifically for low-income applicants from Black or other Minority Ethnic backgrounds.

This MA is aimed at a wide range of potential candidates, including graduates from undergraduate courses in social sciences, history and health sciences; intercalating MBBS students; PhD students on 1+3 programmes; health practitioners; those working in the statutory sector; and those in third sector and community organisations.

It has been designed for flexibility and control on the part of the learner, with considerable opportunity to shape the programme by choosing from a wide range of optional modules across different disciplines at the University. We welcome students from non-traditional academic backgrounds and pathways and consider a diverse cohort to be a significant strength in any academic course.
