Health and social care is all about supporting people; working flexibly and creatively to accommodate the increasingly complex needs of individuals, families and communities. If you’re interested in helping to plan and deliver health and social care services then this course is for you.
Many people are presenting longer-term and more complex needs. This all requires new roles and new ways of working so health and social care services providers can respond flexibly to the needs of the people using services, their families and carers.
Designed in partnership with key service providers and commissioners organisations, the BA (Hons) Health and Social Care degree develops the health and social care workers of the future. Covering health and care policy and trends, social and psychological approaches to care and health as well as the critical issues in adult and children’s care, you will also apply your learning throughout your studies on work placements.
On completing your degree you will be fully prepared to be able to make a positive impact on the delivery of services, changes in policy and practice at an individual, family and societal level.
You'll be taught in several ways, including small group discussions, practical activities and lectures. You'll also go on placements in a variety of practice settings in your third year to give you a flavour of the different environments you can work in when you graduate. And you'll have the chance to put the theory you've learned into practice.
