MSc Professional Health and Social Care Studies

The Course Programme Structure Staff Profiles Why YSJ ?


The programme gives health and social care professionals the chance to advance their knowledge and practice as well as grounding their learning in their own practical experiences.

There is a central focus on service delivery, patient/user experience and outcome and higher level professional experience.

The programme has been commended for its responsiveness to the changing needs of the health and social care sector, adapting to meet the needs of students.

In this flexible modular based programme you will be able to plan your own course of study through a range of generic subjects (eg leadership), specialist clinical areas (eg cardiac and pulmonary care), as well as specialist pathways.

A specialist pathway has been introduced in Housing to enable students interested in Adaptive Housing to focus their learning in this area.
