MSc Gerontology and Ageing Studies
Understanding and addressing the complex issues around ageing has never been more important. In the UK over the last 25 years, the number of people aged 65 and over has increased by more than 1.5 million and globally the population aged 60 and over is growing faster than all younger age groups.
Our Master’s degree in Gerontology and Ageing Studies will equip you with the specialist knowledge and experience to work with older people, design policies, manage and deliver services, and create products for an ageing population.
You will gain a unique insight into the policy differences between the devolved countries of the UK and across the globe, as well as refining research and analytical skills valued by employers in this rapidly evolving field.
