Professional Studies

Course Description

Master’s degrees are becoming a requirement for practitioners working at a higher level in health and social care. These posts often integrate a range of roles and challenges, including management, education, and direct client care. This course offers opportunities to integrate your studies to meet the differing demands of modern job roles, tailoring your choice of modules to meet your needs and individual interests.

Why Study Professional Studies with us?

The Faculty of Health and Social Care offers this flexible modular course, which will give you the opportunity to tailor your choice of modules to suit your individual needs and interests.

You can effectively develop your own bespoke Master’s course, thus enabling the degree to refl ect the differing demands of modern job roles in an ever-changing working environment.

What will I learn?

The course has three core modules: Research; Leadership, Development and Change; and the Dissertation.

For the dissertation, you have a choice of the traditional research-based Dissertation or a Work Based Learning Project.

You may choose modules from the postgraduate provision within the Faculty for the remaining 80 credits. There may also be opportunities to transfer in credits undertaken at other higher education institutions.

How will I be taught?

Our course is delivered at Riverside Campus. Teaching is by a variety of methods. Some modules are taught via e-learning, others a mix of e-learning and classroom teaching, and others by tutorials or work-based learning.
Contact hours are variable depending upon the module delivery. Each module, apart from the dissertation, has 20 credits and equates to 200 hours of learning over the duration of the module, including approximately three contact hours per week per module.

How will I be assessed?

You will undertake a range of assessments, including practical assessments, essays, reflective writing, presentations and work-based learning.
