Social Policy helps address today’s most pressing challenges by explaining how and why societies change, and how governments and other institutions respond. Our undergraduate programme keeps pace with the ways in which globalisation, social movements, the European Union and devolved administrations in the UK shape policies in Wales and beyond.
Studying social policy at Swansea University could enable you to influence how societies recognise and address people’s social needs. It would give you the knowledge and skills to pursue a career in public services, criminal justice, voluntary organisations or personnel management.
Students also gain a range of key transferable skills, including analytical and critical thinking, problem-solving, independent study and team working as well as written, presentation and other communication skills.
The course could also prepare you for further professional and vocational training in fields such as law, teaching, social work or postgraduate study or research.
The University’s Academic Success Programme offers complementary study skills courses to help students maximise their potential.
