About Health & Welfare
Masters degrees in Health & Welfare equip postgraduates with the skills to work across a range of support services aimed at improving the health and welfare of vulnerable people.
Related subjects include Public Health and Social Welfare. Entry requirements normally include an appropriate undergraduate degree such as Social Work or Nursing.
Health & Welfare professionals help with a broad range of support services for vulnerable individuals and disadvantaged communities. Their aim is to tackle issues such as high infant mortality, substance abuse, sexually-transmitted disease, homelessness and domestic violence.
Training normally involves examining the current services available to deprived communities, including policy around present practice, and the ethics of the role of Health & Welfare professionals within society.
For example, you might analyse the ethical issues related to removing vulnerable children from dangerous families, and the impact of placing them in other care settings. Or, you might analyse correlations between problems like excessive alcohol consumption and domestic abuse.
Careers are highly varied, and many graduates specialise in services such as sexual health, rehabilitation, and rehoming facilities for asylum seekers and refugees.
