Our Social Care Joint Honours course focuses on the context within which social problems arise and includes in-depth examination of social issues and the ways in which these issues are addressed. You can combine your study with complementary subjects such as Health Studies, Education, Law, Sociology and Psychology.
This course recognises the current climate, particularly on service delivery, examining how individuals, organisations and communities seek solutions to social problems and effectively respond to social issues. You will be equipped with the key skills required for working in the social care sector.
This course will develop your understanding of social welfare and social care provision in areas such as community development, safeguarding vulnerable adults, health promotion, mental health, substance misuse and gender-based issues. The course aims to equip you with the knowledge, understanding and empathy to empower those considered to be disadvantaged in society in order to improve their lives and maximise their choices.
