The School runs a range of programmes based in the Social Sciences. Our BA and MA programmes in Social Work will qualify you for professional social work registration. Our BA programmes also run in Sociology, Criminology. In addition, there are BA major degrees in Special Educational Needs, Social Policy, Childhood and Youth, Health and Well-Being and Health & Social Care. Finally, we have four further MA programmes. The MA Youth and Community Work also brings professional recognition in this field. Our academic routes also include the MA Disability Studies, MA Criminology, MA Sociology and MA in Social Policy. These provide an academic route to those wanting to further their study in these areas.
The teaching in the School is provided by highly qualified staff who research and publish in their field. We also provide a range of field trips (both national and international) and provide a range of opportunities for students to engage with social welfare projects and link the worlds of academia and practice. Each year the school also run a Social Work Film Series.
Our aim is to make your time with us enjoyable but also challenging and thought-provoking. Our programmes will provide you with the necessary skills, competences and knowledge to challenge societal inequalities and support your communities.
