The MRes Health and Wellbeing aims to develop an interdisciplinary understanding of the social, biological and environmental drivers of individual health behaviours and interventions appropriate to develop health and wellbeing. It is designed to extend your understanding of the social science underpinning the development of effective interventions, strategies and policies aimed at sustainable improvement in health and wellbeing, and reducing physical and psychological health inequalities. The programme examines contemporary issues related to modifiable disease risk behaviours and the determinants and correlates of these lifestyle behaviours across the lifespan. You will develop an understanding of the interdisciplinary skills and processes to translate scientific research into practical health and wellbeing applications.
The MRes Health and Wellbeing forms part of the Economic and Social Research Council South West Doctoral Training Partnership – a hub of world-class social science research.
Students can also opt to take option modules at the University of Bristol and the University of Bath.
