Population ageing is transforming Australian and global societies. As our societies move towards having more older adults than children and younger people in the population, it is integral that our social services and infrastructures are reimagined and redesigned to support this growing demographic. This includes new workplace and career opportunities that we are only beginning to imagine. To best prepare our society and community for this significant demographic and social change, we need new interdisciplinary ways of thinking.
To meet the needs of creating a skilled workforce in ageing, the internationally recognised Wicking Dementia Research and Education Centre has created the Bachelor of Ageing and Dementia Studies; a new undergraduate degree to explore the contemporary issues relating to ageing, aged care, and dementia in Australia, and to skill a workforce for now and into the future. This specialised, comprehensive, and evidence-based degree will help you to develop your analytical, critical, and translational skills through an interdisciplinary approach which draws upon the knowledge and expertise of our recognised scholars in fields including nursing, physiotherapy, psychology, and sociology, to prepare you to deepen and develop your skills in working with and for older adults.
