Course programme

Year 1

You will take three core courses introducing you to the study of health and social issues, associated policies and related research. These courses establish key concepts around the varied determinants of health and welfare, and cover a range of topics within social theory (for example, identity, gender, globalisation and moral panics). These courses are complemented by two generic courses that place specific health and social material in a wider context.

Year 2

You will focus on more applied and practical considerations, taking four core courses:

  • Health policy and practice
  • Social policy and practice
  • Public sector systems management
  • Research methods for social science.
Year 3

You will start to specialise more, studying health and social policy in a contemporary context, global challenges at the end of life, and media, health and lifestyle. You can also choose either a work placement or a dissertation on a topic of your own interest.

At each level you can also choose from a range of elective courses across other disciplines. This gives you the opportunity to add breadth to your degree.

Year 4

Successful completion of years 1, 2 and 3 offers the opportunity to progress to the Honours programme and become involved in the Enquiry Project in Health & Social Policy. This is a full-year practice-based research project that involves the planning and execution of a significant piece of field research.
