The MSc Health Sciences is designed to offer the opportunity for experienced practitioners and others interested in the health area to focus on practices, policies and drivers in relation to their impact on the area. The intention is to create the conditions in which students are able to reflect on issues that are relevant to their own professional work. The programme enables individuals to consider the implications of their learning, reading and enquiry for policy and practice in their own area of interest. For part time students employed in practice there are opportunities to engage in relevant workplace learning.
The aim of the programme is to establish the conditions and standards for rigorous critical enquiry and to extend the criteria for judging taken-for-granted assumptions underlying policy and practice in the Health field. The programme will enable students to develop an increasing respect for evidence and discourse and the capacity to initiate and sustain change, both in their own practice and more generally within their professional context.
Students can opt for the MSc Health Sciences (Management) programme.
