Programme structure The programme provides you with an advanced understanding of current debates, theories and concepts relevant to international social policy. You learn about the common features of social policy arrangements internationally and the diversity and differences that characterise welfare in different countries.
The programme enables you to apply theories and methods of social policy in exploring specific social policy fields such as health, migration, pensions, education, social care, poverty and social exclusion, urban development and family policy. You become familiar with the use of primary and secondary data collection in areas pertaining to social policy, and are equipped to think critically about the development of social welfare systems in a global age.
