A degree in Geography and Social Policy allows students to explore many of the fundamental issues facing contemporary western societies. Geography provides students with an appreciation of the spatiality of societal processes, urban, social and economic challenges, and the influence of the physical environment in shaping this geography. Social Policy involves studying people’s wellbeing and welfare, and investigates the leading social issues and problems of the day, especially in areas such as health, housing, community, gender, family, child and youth wellbeing, and the issues raised by the ageing of our populations. Studying Geography and Social Policy offers students a range of highly complementary theoretical, conceptual and methodological approaches to understanding and addressing the changes, challenges and needs facing society today.
