"This programme is offered to you as a specialization of the MSc programme Management, Economics and Consumer Studies.The aim of the MSc specialisation Health and Society is to study social and behavioural aspects of health and health promotion. This includes understanding of social, psychological, environmental and societal factors of health, illness and quality of life, as well as the consequences of the health condition both for the individual and for society. As health is related to a diversity of interrelated factors like housing, neighbourhood, work, education, lifestyles and recreation, the development of intersectoral policy is essential. Several disciplines are therefore presented and studied varying from sociology, health promotion, economics, demography, environmental studies and life sciences. The relevance of the study domain is growing as a consequence of increasing health inequalities, diseases (e.g. heart disease, diabetes, HIV/Aids) and health costs. Among policy makers awareness of the impact of health (policy) and health promotion is increasingly recognized in recent national and international policy documents.
