Public health professionals include those from a wide variety of backgrounds including nursing, medicine and dentistry, environmental health, public policy, law and social sciences.

The three functions of public health include the assessment and monitoring of community needs for health and wellbeing, the formulation of policies that promote health and wellbeing and to ensure that equal access to appropriate care and services is prioritised.

Our programme will enable you to develop the appropriate skills through training that covers epidemiology and research methods, statistics, public health foundations and an understanding of the epidemiology of infection, disease and injury. You will also have the opportunity to choose particular modules that suit your future career plans.

The MSc Health and Social Care is for professionals working in the health, social and related public services. A range of professionals choose to undertake this course; for example, nurses, case managers, community matrons, physiotherapists, occupational therapists, pharmacists and paramedics.

The course offers a broad-based field of study that is geared towards social care and will extend your knowledge and understanding in this field.

This course reflects the ‘QAA Draft Statement of Common Purpose for Subject Benchmarks for the Health and Social Care Professions (2004)’ by encouraging shared learning for students from a range of health and social care disciplines.

The programme’s linkage of the professional to their context focuses students’ learning on meeting the needs of clients and patients within an environment that requires effective team, inter-professional and inter-agency working and communication, as well as expert practice.

This new statement of common purpose is set out under three main headings: values in health and social care practice; the practice of health and social care; and knowledge and understanding for health and social care practice.

The MSc in Health and Social Care is part of the MSc Professional Development framework in the School of Health and Social Sciences at the University of Bolton.

Study on the MSc Health and Social Care will be a shared experience with practitioners from different spheres of health and social care, providing you with a unique insight into broader issues and practices across the health and social interface.

You will be taught by a highly motivated academic team based in the School of Health and Social Sciences. You will also receive input from related subject specialists.

The course will challenge you to take a critical approach to your studies and professional development, and will enable you to make practical and effective use of your learning in your professional role. In addition to gaining subject specific knowledge you will enhance the research skills that will help you make use of your developing depth of knowledge.

The UWE EdD (Professional Doctorate in Education) has been running since 2005 and has recently undergone a re-validation in order to ensure it continues to provide the most up to date teaching methods and content. Read more
The UWE EdD (Professional Doctorate in Education) has been running since 2005 and has recently undergone a re-validation in order to ensure it continues to provide the most up to date teaching methods and content.

It is aimed at professionals from many areas of action - teachers from all sectors, educational administrators, policy officers, professionals involved in education in their specialist field such as nurses, paramedics, social workers, occupational therapists, community workers and others. Our goal is to better understand and improve programmes of training and education and, through this, to improve professional services and their role in a democracy.

Key benefits

The EdD is a Professional Doctorate in Education, equivalent in status and challenge to a PhD.

Course detail

The teaching on the EdD programme is highly interactive. It is seminar and workshop-based, and has a supportive supervision framework. The taught element (Years 1 and 2) is driven by practical research tasks. Assessment throughout is designed to put professional learning to the forefront, and to derive from this the academic standards which will allow us, eventually, to confer the award of a Doctorate. This is, in all senses, a professional doctorate.

Enquiry-based work at doctoral level is expected to lead to the generation of original knowledge, and this implies a greater intolerance of closure and resolution of issues and controversies; and a correspondingly higher level of tolerance for complexity.

We would expect, for example, compared to work at Master's level, a keener and more critical reading of research literature with the ability to differentiate between competing schools of thought. The capacity to bring to bear multiple contexts for understanding an educational issue (political, ethical, personal, historical, methodological).

Structure

- Part 1 -

Four taught modules of 30 credits each, giving a total of 120 credits:

• Action Research and Evaluation in Education - This module explores the methods and challenges involved when professionals engage in researching their own practice and/or context. Issues of reflexivity and ethics are particularly focused upon.

• Theoretical Perspectives on Teaching and Learning - A range of theoretical perspectives available to researchers in educational settings are discussed in this module including, as an example sociocultural theory.

• Researching Educational Policies and Professional Identities - Methodologies and methods for studying education policies and professional identities are the focus for this module.

• Advanced Preparation for Research - This module allows students to develop their skills and understanding in developing their own research proposal

- Part 2 -

Supervised study with a Director of Studies and one or more supervisors supporting you as you engage in a piece of research resulting in a written thesis of 60,000 words.

Format

We can offer supervision across a wide range of substantive and methodological fields, some examples of which include: case study; statistical procedures; quasi-experimental design; grounded theory; discourse analysis; social theory (eg. Bourdieu); action research; interpretative sociology; life history research; feminist approaches; questionnaire design; narrative research; focus group work.

About the Course

The BSc (Hons) Contemporary Health Practice (CHP) provides a programme of Level 6 study that focuses on the professional development needs of a broad range of practitioners from the health services, social care services, professions allied to medicine, ‘non-professional’ managers, health promotion and drug & alcohol workers. It is an accessible ‘top-up’ for those with an existing diploma, or equivalent (see under entry requirements), who wish to enhance their professional development and career opportunities by attaining an honours degree.

The programme provides the opportunity for students to source learning that meets both immediate, but also future, practice and career development needs. This degree programme contributes to the growth of the ‘knowledge economy’ with learning linked to real-world needs, thereby enhancing professional as well as personal development. With the professional/practitioner in mind, the programme is designed to facilitate flexible, inter-professional, learning opportunities (as appropriate) and can be studied at a pace, and sometimes a place, suitable to the student.
