About

Students on the MSc Dementia Studies programme offered by the Bangor University will benefit from studying in a School of Healthcare Sciences that is highly ranked for its research in general and in particular for its research into people living with Dementia.

Overview

The Dementia Studies programme offered by the Bangor University builds upon existing theoretical perspectives and research evidence underpinning applied health and social care practice in the field of dementia care.

It critically examines current theory, practice and policy in order to advance appropriate approaches to dementia care from the disciplines of mental health, health and social care management. 

The course seeks to develop a framework for students to engage in active person- and familycentred care of people with dementia across diverse acute and community settings. 

It positions assessment, care planning and interventions as strategies that respond to the complexity of dementia as a lived experience, including attention to bilingual therapeutic interventions in order to develop excellence in service delivery.

Career opportunities

This programme provides student-focused learning that critically examines both the theory and practice framing contemporary approaches to health and social care management for people with dementia. 

It has no placements or clinical competencies, making it suitable for local and international candidates who wish to study at this level as a career requirement or for academic progression.
