The BSc Health and Social Care (Hons) - Top-up course offered by the University of Central Lancashire (UCLan) has potential relevance to you if you have gained a Foundation Degree in Health and Social Care, or equivalent qualification such as a Diploma in a health or social care subject, and wish to further develop your knowledge base to Honours degree level.
The School of Health has developed this BSc (Hons) Health and Social Care in response to the needs of health and social care providers in the voluntary, private and public sectors. The intention of this programme of study is to achieve an understanding of the nature of health and social care, delivery research evidence, management and health and social care policy. The core of the programme involves the application of evidence based practice and social and behavioural science disciplines to current health and social care practice and delivery.
You will develop an awareness of the changing political, philosophical, economic, cultural and social contexts of health and social care services and will be encouraged to look at the current quality and performance agendas. The undertaking of core modules will enable you to build up a solid knowledge base and develop advanced critical thinking and problem solving skills. A range of optional module choices from specialist areas of health and social care will encourage you to develop both an individual perspective and to pursue your particular interests and areas of practice.
You’ll graduate with a knowledge and skills base enabling you to pursue the growing range of non-vocational career pathways in a variety of current and future developments in health and social care both within the state and private sector.
