Applications are invited for those wishing to pursue a Full-Time Masters Programme in the Department of Social Science, Health & Medicine starting from September 2013.  Each award will provide £2000 toward home/EU tuition fees.

Health & Illness are more than medical matters; illness is a human experience, in which biological processes are shaped by social, political and economic conditions, by cultural beliefs and values, and by systems of language and meaning. The Department of Social Science, Health & Medicine is unique interdisciplinary social science department working in collaboration with biomedical researchers and clinicians. We focus on the social, political, economic, legal and ethical factors shaping developments in biomedicine, disease and healthcare and their implications. It is also home to the Institute of Gerontology, a leading multi-disciplinary centre for research and teaching into the study of ageing.  More information about the Department (and the Institute) and its strands of research can be found here http://www.kcl.ac.uk/sspp/departments/sshm/research.aspx and http://www.kcl.ac.uk/sspp/departments/sshm/geront/research/index.aspx.
