Course content

This is a new programme being offered for the first time in 2011. It aims to equip students with the skills necessary to engage with contemporary theoretical, policy and practice-related issues relating to work and study with young people in the national and international context of community regeneration. The course offers a critical forum where the complexities of social regeneration can be addressed. It builds upon existing research and teaching strengths at undergraduate and postgraduate levels within the Department of Sociology, namely inequality and social exclusion; the welfare state; social change; youth and community, social regeneration and sociological research methods. The programme also offers the possibility of taking elective modules at NUIG and at Mary Immaculate College, Limerick (MIC).
