BA (Hons) Health with Social Care

This programme will enable students to develop a critical awareness of the potential factors that can influence the health and wellbeing of individuals, their communities and populations nationally and globally.

Students will examine and reflect upon the contribution of multidisciplinary and inter-professional team working, and how to operate in a collaborative way as an effective member of the team. Crucially, this will also allow students to develop and advance their knowledge of current and future health and social care needs of individuals and communities, ensuring that the views of service users, carers and other stakeholders are fully represented in care processes.

This degree is structured to provide you with an extensive look into health and social care work from management, regulation and compliance to how biological, psychological and sociological factors of human development influence the sector. 

Upon completion of the degree, successful students will be equipped with the appropriate knowledge and skills to pursue a career in health and social care.
