*New* MSc programme on Ageing and Public Policy

The Irish Centre for Social Gerontology is delighted to announce a brand new and innovative MSc programme on Ageing and Public Policy in the next academic year. This is the first programme of its kind in Ireland and one of only a small number internationally.


The programme analyses ageing as a critical public policy issue for all international contexts. Current developments concerning the COVID-19 pandemic, and its implications for population health, welfare systems and social cohesion, only serve to underlie the importance of this topic even more for society.


Graduates will have in-depth analytical skills sets which will enhance their employability in general and age-specific public policy organisations. Graduates are likely to find employment as policy analysts, managers and researchers in government and public bodies; policy and strategic planners in civil society organisations; service coordinators; senior staff in private age-related organisations. This course will serve as an excellent grounding to pursue a Ph D programme.
