Bereavement Studies

This programme is being re-designed and will be open for applications in Spring 2017.

Loss, grief and bereavement have a significant impact on our development as human beings and through the life cycle. The understanding of bereavement is a cross-sectoral issue, spanning health, social services, education and voluntary sectors

Course structure

The Irish Hospice Foundation and the Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland invite applications for this part-time programme.

The programme is a two year MSc course (with the choice of exiting with a Postgraduate Diploma after one year). Invitations are invited from representatives of a wide range of professional disciplines whose work or volunteering roles involve the provision or organisation of bereavement support services.

Aims and Objectives of the Programme

The Postgraduate Diploma/MSc Bereavement Studies aims to promote the development of a bereavement support infrastructure in Ireland which is evidence-based, sensitive to Irish culture, to the range of grief reactions experienced by individuals and which acknowledges the fundamentally normal context of loss.

The programme aims to promote competent, sensitive and ethical practice in bereavement care in Ireland and to support researchers and practitioners in their efforts to apply research findings to practice.

Duration

2 years part-time
