Information Evening on Postgraduate Violence Studies at the University of Auckland in 2017

September 29, 2016 at 3:18 PM

*From the New Zealand Family Violence Clearinghouse*

In 2017, the University of Auckland will again offer violence studies courses leading to Postgraduate Certificate in Health Sciences (PGCertHSc).

The School of Population Health will hold an information evening about the Postgraduate pathway in Violence Studies at Tāmaki Campus on Tuesday 11 October 2016 at 5.30pm.

This postgraduate pathway in Violence Studies results from collaboration between the School of Population Health (Faculty of Medical and Health Sciences) and the School of Counselling, Human Services and Social Work (Faculty of Education and Social Work). Recognising a need for formal postgraduate education in violence studies, courses have been developed to address the recognised core and advanced competency requirements for professionals working in this demanding field.
