Course summary

International social and public policy analyses real world issues such as poverty, disadvantage, international development, welfare and work.

It centres on understanding and addressing social problems in society and examines the formation and implementation of policy, and how this affects people's wellbeing. As a multidisciplinary subject, it draws on theories and expertise from subjects such as sociology, politics and economics.

The BSc International Social and Public Policy aims to provide an understanding of how policies are formulated and implemented in industrialised societies, transition economies and the Global South. The Department takes a comparative, international and contemporary perspective: investigating the changing role of states, the non-profit sector, the market and informal providers like families and communities in producing social welfare.

You will study a broad range of topics from social, economic and political standpoints. These include citizenship, education, health and social care, international development and urbanisation as well as cross-cutting dimensions such as gender, ethnicity and the impact of globalisation. You will examine issues such as poverty and wellbeing, levels of social protection and their eligibility conditions, the nature of private-public partnerships, or the mix of public and private schools.

You can also choose to take a specialism in Development, which focuses on middle and low-income countries and the way in which social and public policy are discussed, produced and implemented to deal with inequalities and to increase wellbeing.
