The MSc in Gerontology and MSc in Gerontology with Dementia Care cater for a range of professionals with relevant experience and interest in working with older people. They will have particular appeal if you are a health and social care professional and also if you are working in the third sector (e.g. charities, voluntary organisations, social enterprises, etc.).
The MSc in Gerontology aims to develop knowledge, skills and confidence by introducing debate around our understanding of ageing, the impact of shifting demographics and the integration and globalisation of health and social care.
The MSc in Gerontology with Dementia Care focuses on the care of people living with dementia particularly changing care priorities as it advances.
Both courses are designed to equip students with an in-depth knowledge in order to allow them to utilise leadership and planning skills to promote evidence informed approaches to meeting the needs of our ageing population.
