Course overview

The Social Determinants of Health module provides you with a strong, interdisciplinary foundation in social theory and the methodological instruments needed for individuals interested in making an impact on the way people are born, live, grow, work and age (including the healthcare system).

The focus of this module is to expose, explore and examine the core theories of social stratification, inequalities, inequities and social justice; the social patterning of disease and mortality and the social and biological factors in the aetiology of health outcomes as well as the ways in which these mechanisms can operate across the life-course. In so doing, the Social Determinants of Health module will enable you visualise the ways in which seemingly everyday aspects of life are inequitably distributed, shaped by and reproduce socio-economic pathways, thereby contributing to marked health disparities with fundamental bearing on health.
