Overview

Throughout the Integrated Health and Social Care degree, we aim to support you to review, debate and evaluate different health and welfare systems, as well as current debates and developments in this academic area.

You will research the history of health and social welfare provision, critically examine a range of professional roles, analyse global health issues and government policy, as well as debate a range of significant social welfare issues such as disability, equality and social justice; migration and asylum; health and the life-course and the integration of health and social welfare services.

This degree also aims to equip you with an understanding of the issues and tensions of working across professional and organisational boundaries and why better integration between health and social care can lead to higher standards of care and service delivery.

This knowledge prepares you for potential roles in a variety of health and social care settings, in the public, private and voluntary sectors, as well as for further, post graduate and/or professional study in this discipline.

Career opportunities

You will be encouraged to explore a range of career pathways throughout your degree and develop an understanding of contemporary ways of working in the field of Integrated Health and Social Care engaging with a range of employers, alumni and external agencies. As part of this process you will be formally linked to an outside agency for the duration of your degree. This agency could be in the Public, Private, Voluntary or Charitable Sector, and will play an important role in affording you an opportunity to apply and test your academic leaning against “real world” organisational settings.

You will be supported to develop key professional and personal skills (such as one to one work, group work, interviews and presentations) throughout the course. You will be encouraged and supported to engage with volunteering opportunities.

The skills learnt and assessed through the course will develop your employability, and you will have acquired the characteristics of a Northumbria graduate – the ability to think independently, work collaboratively, and apply innovation.
