Health & Wellbeing

Recent years have seen widespread recognition of the need to move beyond medicine with a greater emphasis on the promotion of health and wellbeing. New government initiatives and policies are giving this greater priority than ever before. Health and Wellbeing is a vibrant, multidisciplinary degree in which you will explore a range of issues and debates relevant to health and wellbeing in contemporary society.


Our History course explores aspects of both modern and early modern British, Irish, and European history. In the first year you will study two key units, twentieth century European history and England 1530-1650: these two periods enable students to encounter a very wide range of historical issues and types of evidence. In the second year you will study a course on Nationalism and Imperialism which explores continental European developments and Anglo-Irish relations from the seventeenth to the late twentieth centuries. The final year enables you to study a selection of specialist subjects linked closely to staff research expertise. At all levels you will analyse primary sources and the work of historians, developing your understanding of challenging ideas and concepts. You will pursue an independent research assignment or two smaller ones.
