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.

Our expert staff

Our staff are multi-professional, including clinically-qualified lecturers, sociologists and social policy and management specialists, so they have clinical and academic credibility.

Specialist facilities

As a student on this course you will not only have access to Health and Human Sciences but also have access to our business school. Our landmark new Essex Business School building is the first zero-carbon business school in the UK. Set around a lush winter garden, the Eden-style dome will give the building its own micro-climate.

Our new building is a beautifully crafted environment for students, offering:
-Study pods and innovation booths for group-working
-A light and spacious lecture theatre, with seating for 250 students
-A café with adjacent sun terrace
-A virtual trading floor with Bloomberg Terminals offering direct use of Bloomberg data, information and analytics
-A rainwater pond that recycles water to cool the building

Your future

We currently have graduates working in both clinical and management positions in local trusts, hospitals and care organisations, as well as in local and county councils.

This course also lends itself to progression onto our PhD Health Research, or our PhD Health and Organisational Research.

A postgraduate qualification is a major achievement and greatly valued by employers. For some jobs a postgraduate qualification may be essential, for others it offers a competitive edge. Our graduates go into a variety of jobs, where the key employability skills and knowledge they have gained through postgraduate study are put to good use.
