Course summary

COURSE OVERVIEW

What human beings need and how societies meet those needs is at the heart of social policy. Our outstanding, nationally recognised degree in Social Policy will introduce you to the key theories and debates underpinning this intriguing and continually-evolving area.

The foundation year of this four-year course will introduce you to the key concepts and knowledge you need to progress to the BSc in Social Policy. Following successful completion of the Foundation Year, students will progress onto Year 1 of the BSc.

The foundation year (level 3) will be delivered by The College, Swansea University (TCSU). Years 2-4 (levels 4-6) will be delivered by the College of Human and Health Sciences.

You will explore how society promotes the well-being of its members, examining themes and values such as social justice, equality, fairness, and citizenship, alongside specific policy focal points such as health, education, housing, disability, crime, poverty, and the family.

You will develop excellent research and analytical skills and learn to communicate your ideas effectively in a range of formats.
