The programme is extremely well fitted to the needs of people already engaged in some way in matters relating to death, dying, bereavement, palliative care, and end of life care – as well as those who seek to move into these fields. We envisage a rich online learning community on the degree, made up not only of practitioners, but also social activists, those working in artistic and cultural media, as well as people pursuing their own personal development on a matter of pressing human interest.
Graduates are likely to find employment in:
- Non-government organisations concerned with end of life care policy, service design and management
- International health organisations, particularly those with a focus on ageing and end of life care
- Government agencies and departments that take responsibility for end of life care strategies and provision
- Creative industries that focus on matters of death and dying in film, literature, public engagement, exhibitions and installations
- Emerging new professional groups – such as Death Doulas and other end of life practitioners
