These courses are designed to introduce you to the interdisciplinary study of social policy, and to develop your skills and knowledge throughout your time at Bristol. As you move through the course you are given the chance to make more choices each year, and can construct your choice of specialisms within the range offered.
The first year, therefore, includes units covering historical and theoretical perspectives, and introducing comparative and international themes and concepts. The second year develops those conceptual frameworks and allows you to follow up your own interests in your choice of units. The third year includes the opportunity for you to design and carry out your own investigation for your dissertation, and to explore more optional areas.
Take a look at this booklet to see how the degree is structured each year and what units are available to study. This has been designed to describe the course structures for the academic year beginning 2020/21.
The School for Policy Studies runs the BSc in Global Health - a highly successful one year intercalated degree for medical students.
