Course summary

Social Policy: This is a degree that uses sociological understanding to enable you to understand and critique how society is delivering people's basic needs through social policy. We will examine policies on resource sharing (the welfare system), somewhere to live (housing policies), health promotion, and ensuring justice. A degree in Sociology and Social Policy will prepare you excellently for a career in a wide range of fields. These include: Probation, Police, Learning, Research, Social Work, Civil Service, Media, Central and Local Government, Law Courts and Voluntary Organisations.

Welsh: As Wales develops as a vibrant bilingual country, there has never been a more exciting time to study Welsh at university level. In fields as varied as education, media and journalism, the civil service, the heritage industry, public relations and marketing there is a great demand for graduates who have competence in Welsh and the ability to work in a bilingual environment. The School of Welsh and Celtic Studies at Bangor has responded energetically to this demand by designing courses which are both academically rigorous and relevant to the needs of modern Wales. At Bangor you will have the opportunity to study rich and diverse literary texts extending from the tales of the Mabinogion to the dynamic literature, theatre and film of contemporary Wales. You will also follow practical language modules which will greatly enhance your career prospects.
