What is Applied Social Studies?
Applied Social Studies is engagement in the critical study and research of society and people from a wide variety of perspectives. The school offers undergraduate, postgraduate, doctoral and continuing professional development programmes in social policy, social work, youth and community work and early years and childhood studies. We offer academic programmes and professionally accredited programmes. We welcome school-leavers, mature students and those from non-traditional backgrounds to study within our innovative range of undergraduate and postgraduate programmes.
The School of Applied Social Studies’ mission is "to provide an educational environment which promotes a culture of critical, intellectual and practice enquiry in the social sciences based upon participation, inclusion and diversity.”
