The stimulating and challenging combination of Social Policy and Sociology will greatly enhance your understanding of the modern world and the policies pursued by governments and other agencies to try to manage it. Sociology examines and questions our theories about human societies and challenges ‘normative’ modes of thought about the world around us, our interactions with it and with one another. Social Policy equips you with the practical skills to understand, research and evaluate policy and the policy-making process.

Our expert lecturers in Sociology have many years’ experience of delivering highly regarded theoretical and practical programmes, and our Social Policy programme is delivered by specialists from the prestigious Policy Studies Institute (PSI). Our PSI team are all professional researchers, actively engaged in real policy research and evaluation.
