The distance between natural sciences and the humanities can seem insurmountable. The proposed concentration aims to counteract that illusion by explicitly combining natural sciences and humanities content and approaches within a single curriculum. The fields of medical humanities and health humanities have existed since the 1960s. They can be defined as using the approaches of the humanities to interpret science and medicine and using the approaches of science and medicine to interpret literature and the arts. The aim is to bridge the apparent gulf between science and experience.
