This new course gives you the opportunity to study in a high-profile and nationally recognised department and benefit from direct access to research active and internationally linked academic staff.
The programme offers eight weeks in professional social care settings with local partner agencies. Students’ practice learning is formally assessed and credited as part of the course.
The emphasis on the social and behavioural science disciplinary base is central to understanding people in our societies in context alongside more specific units of study that explore psychosocial perspectives across the life-course, use of self and other; theory and practice, law and social policy and personal and professional development in preparation for your practice placement opportunities. Ethics and values will be a central theme to your preparation for practice and you will address the dilemmas and tensions of working in complex, uncertain human situations.
During the one-year programme you will have the opportunity to undertake two practice placements, totalling 40 days of social care practice.
Applicants will normally have a 2:2 degree in any subject area, or equivalent international degree level qualification
