Why Biosocial Medical Anthropology MSc or Medical Anthropology MSc at UCL | Student Voices

Two current students of the Medical Anthropology MSc and Biosocial Medical Anthropology MSc, Christina and Theo, explain the reasons why they chose their respective degree and how their experience studying at UCL on the programmes has been.

The Biosocial Medical Anthropology MSc is for those wishing to gain proficiency and understanding of biosocial approaches in examining disease, health and medicine. It draws from cross-disciplinary expertise in medical anthropology, human ecology and biological anthropology. It aims to equip students with the theoretical knowledge and practical skills to develop careers that make use of a biosocial approach.

The Medical Anthropology MSc aims to provide sufficient knowledge of advanced medically related anthropology to enable students to utilise anthropological approaches in a range of research and professional roles. We focus on dimensions particular to medical anthropology (e.g. diversity issues in clinical practice, therapeutic narratives, critical medical anthropology, traditional medical systems, mental health).
