This innovative Health and Wellbeing programme from the University of Greenwich aims to provide students with insight into the wider context of health and wellbeing, a subject which is now firmly on the health agenda. Graduates will be able to demonstrate an understanding of the range of skills and competencies associated with the scientific study of this subject.
They will also be able to analyse the importance of the biological, psychological, social, economic and cultural context surrounding individual and community health and wellbeing. The implications of local, national and international policies for the health and wellbeing of individuals and groups are examined and strategies to promote individual, organisational and community health and wellbeing are considered.
Students appraise and use research and demonstrate their potential to contribute to the evidence base underpinning the study of health and wellbeing and acquire the skills to demonstrate graduate attributes for employment.
