Health Humanities: An Interdisciplinary Venue for Exploration
We are a group of researchers dedicated to linking the humanities and health sciences through student-centered research projects, innovative curricula, and public engagement. Our mission is to help prepare the next generation to think across disciplines, consult their values and passions, and tackle real-world problems to create meaningful social change.
Admissions for the English M.A. concentration in Literature, Medicine, and Culture are open every fall. In this interdisciplinary program, students can focus on Global Health; Medicine and the Arts; Constructions of Illness; Narrative Medicine; Race, Justice, and Health. Courses can be taken in departments across the university, including social medicine, occupational therapy, anthropology, and English.
