Core modules will introduce you to historiography and working with primary sources, developing your skills and knowledge. You’ll then choose from a wide range of optional modules to pursue topics that interest you, from the fall of Rome to the 20th century and the US to India. You’ll also gain a wide range of transferable skills that are very attractive to employers. From globalisation to crime, drug policy, disability studies and ethnicity, Social Policy allows you to explore how social, historical, cultural and political influences have shaped welfare and the welfare state. You’ll combine core modules introducing you to key issues in contemporary welfare such as social division and welfare dependency with a wide range of optional modules, offering you the chance to focus on your own interests.
