The BSc (Hons) programme in Social Policy at the University of Bristol is ranked number one in The Guardian's 2013 University league table, and has been consistently at number one since 2007. We are also in 2nd place (and top outside London) on The Complete University Guide's 2013 University league table.
We offer Single Honours and Joint Honours programmes.
Social Policy at Bristol provides students with an interdisciplinary education in the study of pressing social issues, such as poverty and social exclusion, housing and urban change, crime and punishment, and health and ageing; and with ways of tackling these concerns through the welfare state, the market, voluntary bodies, and the activities of individuals and their families.
All of these courses are available as part time options.
When it comes to choosing a career, Social Policy graduates will often have best of both worlds; the degree can be "vocational", if you so wish, across a range of public, private and voluntary services; but it is also a non-vocational degree, if you want to compete for the range of vacancies that still require a graduate with no specification as to subject.
