Social Policy is about the study of welfare in its widest sense. It studies the variety of ways in which welfare can be provided, paid for and regulated, and compares the different approaches nation states take to the welfare of their citizens and others. This course course allows you to study Social Policy as part of a joint honours degree (50% social policy, 50% Childhood Studies and Youth). Social Policy may also be undertaken through the medium of Welsh in the course BA Cymdeithaseg a Pholisi Cymdeithasol. Why choose Bangor University for this course?
