Due to high demand, applications for September 2021 entry are now closed for this course.

Throughout the Health and Social Care degree, we aim to support you to explore, discuss and evaluate social care services and health and welfare systems from a range of different perspectives.

You will research the history of health and social welfare provision, critically examine a range of professional roles, discuss the potential for service user involvement and analyse global health issues and government policy. In addition, you will debate a range of significant social welfare issues such as disability; equality and social justice; mental health; and the social determinants of health.

This degree also aims to equip you with knowledge about some of the issues and tensions of partnership and inter-professional working, involving service users, and why integration between health and social care might lead to higher standards of care.

This knowledge will prepare you for potential roles in a variety of health and social care settings, such as working with people experiencing mental health issues, in Domestic Violence services, or in Public Health teams.  It will also prepare you for post-graduate and/or professional study in this health and social care related subjects.
