About Philosophy of Health and Happiness at University of Birmingham

This programme focuses on happiness and its overlap with health and wellbeing asking questions such as: What is happiness and health? How does illness affect our understanding of what matters? Do our views about death and mortality affect how happy we are? You will explore issues at the intersection of philosophy, ethics, psychology and medicine, which have important implications for policy and health care. This programme is aimed at graduates with a background in philosophy, psychology, theology, health sciences, medicine or social sciences. It also carries CPD credits for members of the Royal College of Physicians.

There has been an increasing interest in happiness in many disciplines including healthcare, philosophy, psychology, economics and ethics. At the same time the concepts of wellness health, illness and disease have become issues of controversy.

You will be taught by a vibrant community of philosophers, pursuing original research on a wide range of topics on which expert supervision is available, including: ethics, metaethics and global ethics; philosophy of mind and cognitive science; philosophy of medicine; the philosophy of health and happiness; and the philosophy of religion.
