This MSc course offers an innovative interdisciplinary perspective on the study of cancer, and provides the opportunity to undertake advanced study in Oxford, a world-renowned academic location, with a new Cancer Centre and a range of expert practitioners working in the cancer field. The department hosts the prestigious HRH Prince Sultan Chair in Cancer Care and the Cancer Care research group. Most people's lives are touched by cancer at some point. Cancer is a major cause of morbidity and mortality, although with increased screening, early detection and continually improving treatments, there are now over two million survivors of cancer in the UK. The impact of cancer does not stop when treatment is over, and cancer can have wide-ranging consequences for physical, psycho-social and practical aspects of life for many years. In addition, cancer is a major focus of medical research, treatment development and clinical trials – all of which raise interesting ethical, legal and policy issues, both in the UK and internationally.Three core modules, which encompass both biological and social sciences, provide the foundation. These equip you to apply key theories and concepts critically, and to develop the skills required to engage in debates about the impact of cancer on the individual, the family and society. A wide range of additional modules offers the opportunity to examine aspects of cancer in greater detail from different perspectives, ranging from professional practice to historical perspectives, from epidemiological and medical research to biotechnology....
