Examining the Social Determinants of Health

The Sociomedical Sciences major and minor programs offer students the opportunity to acquire interdisciplinary knowledge on topics and issues related to health, disease, illness and medicine, as well as analytical and practical skills that will benefit them in post-graduate education and careers in medicine, public health and other allied health fields. Sociomedical Sciences focus on the social determinants of disease and health and examine the correlation between trends in health and its social causes, including social inequality and structural inequities.
