Course content

Our MA Health and Organisational Research is one of two programmes we offer that can either be taken simply as Masters-level programmes, or alternatively can be used as the Masters element of our ESRC-accredited pathways for our Doctoral Training Centre.

As part of our ESRC-funded doctoral training pathway, your course content, aims and outcomes are closely allied to the ESRC ‘7 Global Research Challenges’ criteria. This means that our course is focussed on developing areas of scholarship in issues of Health, Well-being and Psychosocial Issues, Understanding Individual Behaviour and Global Economic Performance, Policy and Management.

Our course should be of interest if you wish to pursue a career in health services and health research. It is taught across our School and Essex Business School, drawing upon both substantive and methodological expertise from within these schools.

On our course, you gain:

  • Knowledge of the core areas of social science, organisational studies and health, including health policy, public health, epidemiology and medical sociology
  • An understanding of the debates surrounding research in the organisation and provision of healthcare
  • Advanced training in researching psychosocial aspects of health and wellbeing

This is a unique opportunity for you to study within an interdisciplinary environment.

Please note that this course can also be studied via modular, credit accumulation.
