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 History: This degree offers the opportunity to study a wide range of periods with a specialism in Welsh History. This course enables you to understand the evolution of Wales, its politics, society, industry and religion through the centuries, and to place this in the context of developments in British, European and American History from the Middle Ages to the present day. Assessment involves a mixture of examinations and essays or projects as well as the final-year dissertation. This degree combines sound historical knowledge with a range of transferrable analytical and presentation skills. This course also provides specialist knowledge of Wales within a European context.
