MSc Military Veterans and Families Studies
Our unique and highly flexible course meets the previously unmet need for a specialist course for professionals who work with veteran clients and their families.
Our course is the first of its kind, addressing the particular skills needed for professionals working in the military, allied healthcare, administration, NHS and third sectors.
Delivered by experts in the field, this MSc will give you 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.
There are three exit points on the way to the full MSc:
- Postgraduate Certificate (PG Cert) (after one year)
- Postgraduate Diploma (PG Dip) (after two years)
- Masters’ Degree (MSc) (after three years)
Our course is delivered online through self-directed learning by interacting with online reading and activities. You’ll also be allocated to a personal online tutor.

The first two modules will be assessed through a construction and assimilation of patchwork texts (a series of separate pieces of work that are 'sewn' together at the end to link to the structure of the module). You’ll need to demonstrate an ability to write with a high level of critical analysis, to argue points from various perspectives and to demonstrate an ability to synthesise your ideas into practice. The Diploma level modules will be assessed through fine-graded essays and a presentation. The Masters level project will be assessed through the submission of a written Major Project.
