Social Policy with Study Abroad - University of Bristol

Social policy provides an exciting opportunity to critically analyse contemporary social issues related to human wellbeing, inequality, disadvantage and crime. This course takes an international and comparative perspective in many units, ensuring social policy is considered in its global context. Social Policy at Bristol has been declared the best in the UK in the Guardian University Guide 2019 (https://www.theguardian.com/education/ng-interactive/2018/may/29/university-guide-2019-league-table-for-social-policy-administration). The first year introduces key concepts and ideologies and familiarises you with theoretical, comparative and historical analyses. It also develops your research skills as a social scientist. Year two develops conceptual frameworks further and deepens your understanding of research methods. After the first year, you can explore your interests in greater depth through a range of optional units. These units vary over time according to current developments in global political and social issues. At the end of year two, you will have the opportunity to study overseas at one of our partner institutions. You will be able to take units related to social policy or units from the broader social sciences, arts and humanities. Previously, students have studied a unit in Swedish and Swedes in Sweden, and Mandarin at City University Hong Kong. Visit Global Opportunities to find out more about where you can study abroad (http://www.bristol.ac.uk/global-opportunities/go-abroad/). You will return to Bristol for your fourth and final year.
