MA (Hons) Health & Social Sector Leadership

In testing times for the health and social sectors, our Health & Social Sector Leadership degree programme equips you with the skills and confidence to think critically, identify key challenges, influence policy and lead change.

This programme is for students who want to make the world a better place, and want to be given the critical analysis skills in order to understand why systems aren’t quite working for everybody across our society.

This degree empowers you with the knowledge and confidence to think critically and identify key challenges in the health and social sectors. Learn about the systems that shape our society and develop skills to influence policy, make a difference in your community, and lead change in the future.
