Health Studies Specialist (Arts Program) - ASSPE2085

The Health Studies Program explores how health around the world is shaped by the circumstances in which people are born, grow up, live, work, and age, and how these in turn connect to a wider set of environmental, social, cultural, economic, and political forces. Understanding health requires knowledge from a range of disciplines and sectors: Health Studies offers a stimulating interdisciplinary environment that challenges students to think about health – both locally and globally – in new ways.
