One-Year Master’s Medicine, Society and Culture
A track in CWRU’s renowned bioethics and medical humanities M.A. degree program
Health and illness involve more than biology and genetics. Community attitudes and resources affect well-being, as
do political and social structures. Understanding these factors, and their complex implications, enables far more sophisticated consideration of disease and well-being—not to mention more effective interventions. This one-year program not only gives students an interdisciplinary foundation, but also clinical experiences where they see concepts play out in real life. We’ve enrolled future physicians, scientists, social workers, as well as people still deciding their disciplines. No matter what professional path you choose, one point is certain: You will never think about health the same way again.
