The Department

The School of Health and Human Sciences* has an excellent reputation for teaching and research in health and social care.  Our academic members of staff (approx. 75) include nurses, other health care professionals, social workers, psychologists and sociologists.  The School is run over 2 campuses, based at Southend and Colchester. Academic staff are supported by a team of administrative staff based at both Colchester and Southend campuses.

In October 2015 we were awarded a bronze Athena SWAN award which recognises the commitment the School has toward equality and development of an inclusive culture promoting dignity and respect.  These are, of course, qualities that are also endorsed by the values of the NHS constitution with which all staff and students engage.  We have, this year, made an application for a silver Athena SWAN award in recognition of the continuing and developmental work we are undertaking to promote equality and diversity.
