Course Description

Our Master's degree in Chronic Disease Management is designed to develop your skills and the expertise needed to promote and support behaviour change.

Chronic disease in our society is on the increase, and although there is strong evidence that lifestyle adjustment can prevent and manage chronic disease, many face complex and challenging barriers to achieving lifestyle behaviour change. Innovative methods and highly trained individuals are needed to successfully tackle the problem from all sides.

There's a need in a range of health settings - including clinical, healthcare, social care and public health departments - for highly skilled, autonomous and analytical employees that specialise in the prevention, assessment and management of chronic diseases. Such employers report that it is currently challenging to find candidates with the experience and skillset needed. This degree will produce highly skilled graduates to address this gap.

This skill-enriching Master’s programme provides you with the opportunity to enhance skills, knowledge and understanding of facilitating, managing and supporting behaviour change at individual, group and population levels. The degree also aims to expand your research expertise.

Chronic Disease Management MSc is ideal if you're looking to progress your current career and provides the vital skills and experience necessary to embark on a career working to tackle chronic disease.
