University of Wolverhampton has opted into the TEF and received a Silver award.
Our Health Studies course is designed to provide you with a unique and coherent experience, offering you a thorough exploration of this exciting and growing subject area.
You will look at health from both a biological and sociological perspective, as well as health promotion and how it can prevent ill health. The course enables you to examine states of positive wellbeing as well as those that go beyond definitions and focus on disease and deprivation; to examine all factors which have the potential to influence health and wellbeing.
For example, you will consider psychological and social aspects, such as causes of ill health as wide-ranging as unemployment, living conditions and politics. You will explore how smoking affects health and why people struggle to quit, and questions of whether obesity is caused through learned behaviour or a lack of education.
This course is one of many courses run by the Institute of Public Health, Social Work and Care, and has an established reputation for excellence in terms of the quality of the course, particularly through the provision of innovative approaches to teaching and learning, and for the student centred friendliness of its academic and administrative staff.
