Global Issues in Gerontology and Ageing course at University of Stirling, cuts across two key scientific areas.
We challenge you to consider how the process of ageing happens across an individual’s life course, not just in later years.
We teach a multidisciplinary approach to gerontology that considers the social impact of ageing.
You'll explore a range of health, social care and policy contexts from around the world that you can apply to a local context.
Core modules have been developed for students who would like to specialise in this fast-growing sector with a focus on the oldest-old, who are the fastest growing group and the most likely to experience frailty, people living with dementia in a range of settings, and the impact of multi-morbidity on an ageing population.
Our Masters in Global Issues in Gerontology and Ageing can be studied entirely online and on a part-time basis, giving you the opportunity to benefit from our expertise in the subject from anywhere in the world, at times that suit your schedule. You will also have opportunities to collaborate and study with other students from around the world.
This course supports the development of expert knowledge in care of the older person. If you’re a professional in health, allied health, social care and not-for-profit sectors, it prepares you to deliver the specialist knowledge and skills required to support your practice.
The course is ideal for graduates or experienced practitioners who want to make a difference in their practice and service delivery alongside older people in a range of health and social care settings.
