Social policy provides an exciting opportunity to critically analyse contemporary social issues related to human wellbeing, inequality, disadvantage and crime. This course takes an international and comparative perspective in many units, ensuring social policy is considered in its global context.

The first year introduces key concepts and ideologies and familiarises you with theoretical, comparative and historical analyses. It also develops your research skills as a social scientist. Year two develops conceptual frameworks further and deepens your understanding of research methods.

After the first year you can explore your interests in greater depth through a range of optional units focusing on contemporary political and social issues.

At the end of year two you will have the opportunity to study overseas at one of our partner institutions. You will be able to take units related to social policy or units from the broader social sciences, arts and humanities. To find out more about studying abroad, visit Global Opportunities.

You will return to Bristol for your fourth and final year.
