The BA (Hons) Social Policy, Health and Housing top-up will provide you with the opportunity to analyse developments in contemporary social policy with a particular focus on community and housing issues.

The degree aims to develop your awareness of the work of agencies at a local level and in areas such as criminal justice. It stresses the importance of effective and cooperative approaches to improving welfare outcomes, particularly at a time of radical changes to public services and welfare reforms.

This degree makes clear the connections between social welfare, health and housing issues, while focusing on multi-agency and community approaches to social problems. By choosing to study Social Policy, Health and Housing, you will find yourself examining the concepts of citizenship and individual rights, equality and fairness. You will also look critically at poverty and health inequalities, the legal and criminal justice systems, and problems faced by NHS users, carers, social housing providers and tenants in a rapidly changing world.

Additionally, you will have a chance to combine rigorous academic study with practical placement activity to further enhance your knowledge and employability.
