Sociology 4120 Sociology of Health (Fall 2019)

Students adopt a salutogenic (health promotion and illness prevention) approach to examine the relationship between social factors (lifestyle, environment, and organization of the health care system) and health. Health is posited as a multi-dimensional construct. The implications of adopting a mainstream theoretical view of the relationship between social factors and health are investigated, i.e., how adopting a certain theoretical perspective can help to explain further or to hinder our understanding of the effect of social factors on health.
