Course content

Are you interested in advancing your career in governmental, non-governmental or academic organisations dealing with welfare and social policy issues at a local, national and international level?

Our MSc International Social Welfare and Social Policy will give you the tools to create strategies for change at a local, national and international level. Our course will enhance your skills in policy making and research and develop your understanding of social issues relating to poverty, inequality, citizenship and migration.

The emphasis is on comparative and global analysis, exploring social welfare and planning responses to issues such as street children, criminal justice and social welfare in areas of political conflict. You’ll have the chance to build and expand on skills relating to policy making, social sciences, leadership and strategies of change. An understanding of comparative and global welfare policies is important for national and international organisations. Therefore, our course is a positive step towards a career in a national and international context, working within the area of social welfare and policy.

We understand just how important it is to prepare our students for the next step in their career. Our course will prepare you for a diverse number of careers from leadership roles in community work, youth organisations, community schools, local, regional and international government bodies, higher education or consultancy.
