Social Policy - Ulster University

Important notice – campus change This course will move to the Belfast campus. Students will change campus part way through this course. Our Social Policy course focuses on key contemporary social policy issues and problems facing modern society. The course critically analyses how (and why) social policies are formed and implemented in the UK, and international social policy analysis considers the EU and beyond. A strong research methods component runs throughout the first two years of the course, as do historical and contemporary perspectives of underpinning theories and concepts, equipping the student for a synthesis of knowledge and understanding to inform the final year specialist modules. We maintain a strong focus on employability, practical and transferable social research skills, and a range of soft skills, necessary for employment in a range of jobs in the public, private and voluntary sectors.
