Through this pathway you’ll consider the reasons behind, and responses to, a wide range of social issues – such as social exclusion, health and social care, poverty, family policies, crime and community safety, citizenship, antisocial behaviour, racism and homelessness. We’ll learn how social policy is formulated and implemented, and get to grips with the theory behind social policy-making it an exciting and challenging environment.
We think it’s important for you to get out into the real world too, so you’ll have the chance to take part in an internship (work experience placement) where you’ll put your practical skills to the test. If you’re keen to see how other countries tackle social issues, there’s an opportunity to study abroad for one semester in Year 2.
Successful completion of this pathway will lead to the award of the following from Anglia Ruskin University:
BA (Hons) Social Policy
