Presentación

Examine key developments in social policy through a global lens, with a strong emphasis on social justice and the ability to influence policy.
Social policy makers weave the fabric of our society. They meld the needs of citizens with the roles of government and not‐for‐profit service agencies in contentious fields like employment, income support, education, health and climate change.
The Master of Social Policy enables you to understand the respective roles of government, private and not‐for‐profit sectors in meeting the needs of citizens. You will examine key developments in social policy through a global lens, aiming to find ethically sustainable solutions, while considering the competing factors of social policy and the economy.
