Course Description

Course overview This degree addresses some of the big questions and issues currently being debated by the media, the public and the government. It examines reasons behind, and responses to, a wide range of issues such as poverty , anti-social behaviour , migration , domestic violence , social exclusion , racism and homelessness . Social Policy combines well with Sociology in addressing the underlying causes of these issues. Sociology explores the social worlds in which humans live and encourages us to look beneath the surface of what we most take for granted about life, giving us new ways of making sense of human existence. Social Policy deals especially with the policies and strategies which are, or should be, developed to deal with issues such as anti-social behaviour , poverty and homelessness . Through studying this combination of Social Policy and Sociology you will gain understanding and insight into why people live, work and interact in the ways they do in order to better address these relevant issues. Formal lectures and seminars will provide you with the theory necessary to develop a real understanding of current social issues. Workshops will give you the opportunity to get to grips with the theory in an exciting and challenging environment, and to develop your practical skills.
