A new online MSc in Global Ageing will be launched in October 2020, ideal for international students.
The course has been designed for practitioners, policymakers, researchers, practitioners and providers of products and services for older people. Students will learn about the latest theories, innovations and best practice in age care, developing their academic and research skills, while studying with a group of international students from different backgrounds and disciplines.
The programme is led by the Faculty of Social Sciences, with contributions from Faculty of Health Sciences and Sport, and the Management School. Students will also have the opportunity to take a module with the world-renowned Dementia Studies MSc. Research modules have been developed for use across the Faculty's online post-graduate programmes.
We are planning to include video contributions from six of our Professors on subjects relating to ageing: Prof Catherine Hennessy, Prof Emma Reynish, Prof Alison Bowes, Prof Ian Philp, Prof Judith Phillips and Prof David Bell.
Subjects covered in the curriculum include:
- Interdisciplinary Perspectives on Ageing
- Lessons from the Global Longitudinal Studies on Ageing
- Living with Dementia
- Understanding Frailty
- How Multiple Conditions Affect Older People
- Quantitative and Qualitative Research Methods
- Project dissertation
