Military Veterans and Families Studies

The course is designed to give students the understanding and confidence to work with veterans and their families in both therapeutic environments and policy and practice development. This is an exciting and dynamic area and the course is designed by leading national and international authorities working with veterans. Our course is delivered online through self-directed learning by interacting with online reading and activities. Students are allocated to a personal online tutor.

Assessment methods

The diploma level modules are assessed through fine-graded essays and the Master's level project are assessed through the submission of a dissertation.
