Teaching

  • SHQM22 Dissertation (Health Care Management)

    Students will choose their own area of study, in consultation with study supervisor, and in accordance with the aims of the award. Students will be encouraged to attempt a project-based, business-planning project while maintaining high academic standards in their research. However, students may also opt for a more theoretical exploration of an area of relevance to health care and health care management. The dissertation comprises Part Two of the MSc programme.

  • SHQM43 Theory and Practice of Leadership and Management in Health and Social Care

    This module will enable students to develop a critical understanding of management and leadership in the context of health and social care. The module will have a dual focus on theoretical perspectives and applied health care management. Theoretical perspectives will be drawn from business, health and further afield, to examine their application within health and social care and the public sector. Contemporary health and social care examples will be used as points for discussion and learning.
