Our courses focus on current social policy guidelines, working on issues that affect people as they age, and preparing you for a career in gerontology. You'll learn how patterns of care change over time, how support is applied between different generations, and how care is provided to people with different characteristics. Our graduates go on to careers including local, national and international policy development, geriatric medicine and nursing, and further specialist research.
