Examine new theories, studies and methods surrounding end of life care issues
As the global population ages and grows, so too does the number of deaths in the world each year. With this comes new patterns of ageing and dying, but access to good quality end of life care varies enormously around the world.
On this degree, you’ll explore issues surrounding where, how, and when we die. You’ll learn about varying cultural beliefs surrounding what makes a good death, and consider global attempts to improve end of life care. Using examples of legalised assisted dying, you’ll consider the debates and issues of end of life care from a social science and humanities perspective.
