Dementia Studies (Arts and Activities)
Aimed at arts practitioners, activity coordinators and others with an interest in developing and delivering creative activities with people who have dementia, this one-year, part-time distance learning programme consists of two 30 credit modules studied between September and June each academic year. There is increasing interest in the potential for the creative arts, participatory approaches and novel forms of self-expression to enhance well-being and social participation for people with dementia. Awareness is growing that taking part in such activities can help to maintain self-esteem, reduce stigma, and keep a sense of identity intact. In addition there are many things that we can learn from people who have dementia and who may communicate in a variety of ways that are not accessed using traditional methods for communication or research. This programme will enable you to develop your skills in designing, delivering and evaluating such activities and will enhance your opportunities for gaining employment in this field or attracting funding for your projects.
